I finally made it past the first 500 miles of my break-in. I can now take it up to 6k rpm, and holy sheet, it's like a whole different bike. I can at last hit highway speeds (75) and the acceleration is quite nice between 4-6k.
I also bought a Cortech mini tank bag tonight, so all around it's been an excellent evening.
I just can't believe what a difference those 2000 rpms can make. The bike has just become 100 times more fun. I can't imagine actually accelerating in the bike's powerband.
