I do occasionally charge British parts on my parents card, I tell them it's easier then forget to pay them :lol

Congrats, I can't help but love this bike, my first R1 was bought in spring of 98, I originally wanted the blue but the magazine reviews and such made me go back to the dealer and say 'I don't care if it comes in shit brown, I want one!' thus I rode away with the red seated bastard, which has now become my favorite. The money you've decided to spend on it is soo well worth it, you could never be happing trading it in for a 2020.
