The Buell lives, after a long winter of disuse. I hooked the battery up to a trickle charger last night (and took it back off before bed to be sure the battery was up to holding a charge). Fired up this afternoon after a few minutes of cranking the engine. Now to get it inspected, change the oil, and probably get it some new tires.
In other news, my wife is right: taking the bike for a spin around the block really does improve my mood.
