I had the motorcycle taken this morning to the local Honda shop by Clyde with Cycle Worthy Towing via AAA.  BTW  they are the best in Georgia @ 678-857-4224 cycleworthy@yahoo.com

I went back to the dealer about 4:00pm EST to drop off the ceramic coated Delkevic full exhaust de-cat system with 10" can finally for installation.  The tech was pulling the bike off the lift as I arrived and noted the engine light was on.  When he returned from the test ride he stated he felt that the throttle was "sticky" when letting off for upshifting between gears.  Having oil and shaft lube replaced for the season.  Looking for forward to thrashing the bike around again with the BMW GS 12R in the mirrors

Update- The dealer's ace Honda tech was on vacation so I had to wait another week. 
The throttle positioning sensor appears to be fine.  The battery needs to be replaced and they stated that the MAP sensor is the issue and needs to be replaced.  Part order and should be in this week

Good news. Post the results of the MAP sensor replacement once you’re back on the road.

WHILE ON THE PHONE WITH HONDA CODE 2-1 MAP SENSOR NO VAC WAS STORED, CHECKED CONNECTION AND LINES TO SENSOR ALL GOOD. HONDA RECOMMEND REPLACING MAP SENSOR. INSTALLED NEW MAP SENSOR, UNIT RUNNING AS SHOULD NO NEW FAULT CODES PRESENT.
