Not a problem to test ride a bike. Simply agree on the price, and then get cash in hand with the understanding that if the buyer drops the bike, they automatically buy it.

That makes sense, cold affects batteries. You may want to practice/find out how to start the bike with a passive fob. Perhaps take off the seat and place it directly in the antenna with no battery. Just in case, you know.
Just FYI, you can start the bike with the fob even if the battery is dead. Simply place it close (1 inch) away from the antenna. On my F750 it is under the seat and can be triggered by holding the fob/spare under the rear fender. I'm assuming it's the same on the 850.

While they can see when the oil service light was reset, there is no way to check which oil you have been using (the bike doesn't know that).

The trend with motor vehicles today is to display the minimal information needed, and allow the vehicle and it's onboard electronics to handle as much as possible without involving the user/driver/rider.
As it is impossible to adjust the TFT to display the temp, try to adjust yourself not to care about it - the bike will alert you if the temp goes too high. There is no good reason to want to monitor the temp versus oil pressure, tire pressure, battery voltage, and a myriad of other parameters.
You bought an expensive bike that's supposed to handle most things and alert you when it needs your attention. Keep your eyes on the road!
