    Ok, so the manual says for 500 miles I should vary the speed, the rpm's, don't rev over 5000 rpm's. So the dealer tells me to ride around town. I was just wondering am I going to need to ride around town for 500 miles cause that will take awhile. I live in a pretty small town. So if this is the case, it will be broke in somewhere around spring of 2010 LOL. How much speed variation do I need? Can I ride the freeway? Or do I need to ride 70 than 50 for awhile, cause people will think I am nuts, or I don't know what I'm doing. This is probly a dumb question, but then again I've never owned a brand new bike. So any help would be great. Thank You in advance. Fuzz
