I decided on the manual breakin method and today I finally broke the 1000 mark. I do have to say, this bike is REALLY fun above 6k rpm!
I now officially have 1000 miles of riding experience. I bought my V 2 months ago and am loving it. The 100 degree heat and being away for the better part of the last couple weeks have kept me off the bike, but I managed to find some excuses today to put a few extra miles on.
I initially bought this bike as a short term (2-3 year) solution for transportation until we were in the spot for a new car. My wife says to me this weekend as I was talking about the bike, "I have a feeling this isn't just a short term thing anymore huh?" "Yup." I said, "I'm hooked."
She's honestly happy that I'm enjoying it, I mean it was her idea in the first place. That, and she has her vehicle back too
I've had quite a few questions over the last couple months as I got started with all of this, so THANKS to all of you who've given input on my questions/issues and have helped me figure things out.
Here's to many more thousands of miles to come!
