yep brand new...we will do as we have with our other 9 bikes...not ride them too hard, try to stay under 5000RPM's...up and down but really with the our other bikes especially the Beemers...we just ride them like we would normally after about 500 KM...who really knows the "proper" way to break in a bike...I mean these engines are modern and I believe they can handle a lot more right out of the gate than some of us believe...but we will take care and not over do it. Today especially in the rain and seeing it will be our first day on the bikes...we will take them to a gravel parking lot, scuff the tires even though we are getting the Heindeau Scouts put on next week...and have fun in the rain...tomorrow it is supposed to be nice out...so maybe just a nice ride out east from here on some twisty roads. Need to get a feel for this engine!
