its not a slug

Over 7000mls with a fixed tyre looked in the service book and says 4000revs to 5000mls the up to 6000revs to 1000mls.

So I though I woud start to ride it properly instead of ***** footing.
Well this thing is fun not as slow as you would expect and front wheel of the ground in second with no help and a fat git onboard.

Cant wait to realy rag it.

Hmmmm.... I didn't follow my break-in procedure and I lifted the front end up here and there throughout the break-in period (let's not turn this into the age old argument on break-in procedures). Now, I lift the front end up all the time....way up, but only where there aren't other vehicles near me or near pedestrian areas, etc. I don't think there is anything wrong with it, I know the risks, but it's fun and a large part of what I enjoy about the Versys' acceleration.
