Alright!

Now go forth and ride, and not just a little.
Put some miles on that thing. Imho less than 100 miles is not an official ride.
Unless you are commuting I guess.
Anyway, don't let it be a garage queen.

An impromptu 125 mi ride today. All is right with the world.

Again thanks for all the moral support.

The CEL does not need to stay lit, in order to find the trouble code that made the light come on in the first place.

Once the light comes on, the code gets stored in the OBD/ECU and can be read after the fact, whether the light is on or not.

When it stays on its definitely broken...when it goes off means it's breaking...code stored or not refers to one of many subsystems that only a parts canon approach will solve...not something dealers will do...my bike spent 6 weeks at the dealer with them unable to find it....error code will only point you in a direction...but says nothing definitive...and unless that part is malfunctioning during testing it won't get another look....it took me another 10k miles to narrow my problem down to a corroding wire...so yeah...it's easy to swap parts out until the CEL goes off but a pita to randomly swap sensors and wait and see
