I had surgery on the ol' belly a little over a month ago. Was able to ride the 14 down to have some work done on it, including a little "stretch" action, but haven't been able to ride the 999 yet. The tank just comes to close the area worked on. Finally got on Bella yesterday and ride a few twisties. All I could think of was, "aaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh". Felt so good I couldn't stand it.
