85's are nicknamed FYK (finest year K) though that's debatable.  Nevertheless, we need photos and details!

Thanks for the link!! 
I just rode it for the first time as I drove it home and am impressed with its design and Powersís well as brakes.  Itís a comfortable ride. Now come the fun of getting all the small details worked out. Thereís ample opportunity to tinker as temp gauge is pegged full, volt gauge inop,left turn button missing, slight surge during steady rpm bet 40-50... 
Full tank of high test and 1/2 bottle of Techron does require a long highway ride tho so first things first!! 😎

It's time for you to learn how to correctly orient photos uploaded from your phone as a courtesy to elderly members here with limited neck mobility.  :giggles  You can do it; I know you can.
