Hey fellow-forumers! Yesterday I put one on hold/down payment and I should have it within the week! The shop I went to had a Black with red flames and a silver one, and I picked up the black with red. I'm really excited and this will be my first bike, and I got the limited color for no extra cost! My friend is picking up the same year and model for the same price, but his is a silver one. Mine has no miles, brand new, and I was just wandering how does one go about breaking a motorcycle in? Any suggestions? Thanks... And other suggestions about riding this motorcycle and riding in general would be appreciated.

First of all, congrats! I love my bike (silver '03) and have never made a better purchase in my life! You'll defintiley be satisfied without a doubt! I was always under the assumption that you take it easy on the engine during the break-in period. I bought mine with 800 miles on it and don't know how it was broken in during that time. However, since then, I have ridden the piss out of her without a problem. you can read about what this guy has to say.

That article is very interesting and made sense. Too late to change my run in but i'll do that next time. Brings on the fun faster.
