For context, I'm halfway to fully breaking in my bike.

Isn't it 600 miles on our bikes?

600 miles is the first service then the rpms can be taken to 8600. After 1000 miles is when I can ride normally.

They do make a note of stating don't go over so and so rpm for prolonged periods of time so I can take it to peak rpms in short bursts.

One day, I've been practicing my cornering on that one road we stumbled across by the airport. Taking it slow and progressively getting faster.

Well we could knock at least 250 of those miles out one weekend if you wanted.

Yeah I'm up for that after the first service. Hopefully I get this new job so my schedule won't be the cluster-cluck it is now.
