You've just bought a bike from them. I really don't think they're the ones paying ;)

Enjoy it. You can't beat new bike day.

Cherrs guys, wow... Its a great bike although I can,t take it over 5000 rev line yet due to running it in issue. But it really feels great and sporty, it wants to be tilted at every opportunity. If it doesn,t rain this weekend I,ll give it a go on cat and fiddle road. ;-)

Enjoy the new ride Fireball, it's a good time of year to do the running in too as you don't really want to be pushing it too hard (y)

ACF-50 is a good idea though.

By the good weather you will be well used to it.

It's a really good anti corrosion spray to keep the salt from doing any damage and keep the bike looking nice.

Well in Fireball, have you sneaked out for a quick look this morning, thinking “My bike!”?

Enjoy it mate, there’s nothing better than New bike day, and nowt worse than the torture of running a new bike in.....

Im sorry for not writing on this thread havenr been able tk read new posts fkr a while having a catch up now. Happy nee bike day for a week ago!! Hope its running in nicely and you've had decent weather to be able to have a play. Running in must be a PITA but like others have said its better to do it now in the colder weather than when you want to be giving it a bit during the summer!!

Thats exactly right Rossgo, as soon as I find a bit of dryness I get out while taking easy I keep piling the miles on to get to the 600 miles on the clock. Then as soon as the first service is out of the way I can open up to 7 or 8000 revs for the next few hundred miles which would be sufficient for any kind of twisty roads to have a great ride on. 8)
