Check you fork seals and head bearing. My fork seals started leaking just after I put new tires on and got oil all over them. almost spilled the bike due to oil on the front tire. Check pads and brake oil levels. Oil change, drain old gas, plugs....I think one of the guys here has a new bike checklist you may want to search it.

Haha! That nest looked just like the one I found myself, after riding my Seca back from the PO's house. Those guys are so crafty, aren't they? ;)

LOL! Same story here, only it was my wife asking what happened.

Things like that really makes my blood cold. I remember tearing down a wall and seeing pink baby rats in a nest and I swear I couldn't even finish the job.
