Cool In with the crowd!

Just purchased a 2013 V. Just joined the pack. Any specific suggestions as to how best to break in this bike would be much appreciated. Already loving it!

To quote FastEddie: Ride it like ya stole it for the first 500 miles, change the oil, run it another 500, change it again and then your golden. Now the dealer will tell you different for warranty purposes.. The decision is yours.

and our bikes are running great after many miles. Sure beats putting around for what seems like forever!

That's basically how I've broken in all my bikes, some of which I did on the race track!
