this is an excellent article- this is exactly how i break in bikes as well and always have.
i have never broke a bike in easy-the method of using short wot burst in lower gears has been a very effective way for me.never have i had complications for running an engine this way- i would absolutley agree that the biggest mistake people make when breaking in is the failure to warm the bike up first.like any motor the first few minutes of operation without oil in the upper cylinders is the most crirical.if you wanna ruin the motor then load it up while its cold.and true most sportbikes are revved more than cruisers and my service manager says that this is why he works on more v-twins than rockets because the v-twin owners are too easy on the bikes when they are new.this is debatable, but i do see what the shop works on.
