    Thanks! The seller told me the bike was sitting for a few days so I would be doing the first start, only way I could confirm was to put my hand around the engine and indeed it wasn't any warmer than ambient.

    Absolutely - hopefully other new riders looking for a bike will learn from my experience. Less miles can be WORSE than more!
