Was the bike a demo? Maybe it's owner became ill or had some other major life change or even got a cruiser or sportbike instead.
500 miles is nothing and we've pretty much established that it doesn't seem to matter how it was broken in as some of us have done it the easy way and some of us the more spirited way. The V is very reliable and it's highly unlikely that one's problematic.....there can be very minor nuisances but this forum is great for getting over them.
Ride To Live, Live To Ride....no, really!
