Took the bike out on the real streets for the first time.
With only 60 miles going up and down my street at a max speed of 30mph, it was a matter of time that I would get my confidence up to go on the main road.
Problem is, I live in an area where the main road goes average 45mph to 55. About highway speeds. But its just not realistic in my situation to keep the revs under 4000 and 5000 according to the manual. So I was more in the 6000 to 9000 range on the open road. The bike performed beautifully, and couldnt be happier. Just hope its not getting damaged by my riding it so high. I rode it up and down my street first at 25 a couple times first to try and warm it up, and did my best to be smooth with the bike on stopping, starting, and accelerating.
Anyone else had to break the 'break in' procedure like I did? I got the 2012 model. Thanks. Good riding to all.
