Running in

Postby Iain_L » Sun Oct 16, 2016 4:18 pm

Page 95 of the owners manual states "Try to do most of your riding during this initial period on twisting, fairly hilly roads".

Happy to do as instructed.

Just back from a great run in the Cairngorm National Park.

God, these 1200s are better than I thought.

For running in, B roads are better than single carriageway A roads which are better than dual carriageways which are better than motorways. Lots of work for engine, gearbox, brakes - to get everything ready for ramping up the speeds and the first service. Then, when you get to the unrestricted autobahn you'll be able to find out what it will do ..... :smile:

Continuing in the same vein, more than happy to keep obeying the instructions.

Obviously as you can see here, I took the high road. Surprised at the number of cyclists who took the route over the hills as well.

Rush hour on the road between Applecross and Shieldaig.

Got to say for late October the weather up here has been great.

BiKing heaven indeed. Was very surprised to be able to count on one hand all the other bikes I saw today. I fully expected to see more given that winter will be here soon, and days like this won't be possible, if only because of the available daylight.
