I'm happy to report that the bike has been 100% so far. No issues whatsoever. Nothing rattled loose, no funny sounds. I have heard people talk about machines loosening up and getting stronger as they wear in but have never experienced it myself. That has changed. You've seen how loaded down we have it. I was plenty happy with it's performance on day one. It now has 2500 or so KMs on it and is noticably more powerful than when we left Seattle. No more downshifts for climbing moderate hills. Last year I owned a mint BMW R60 with 1500 or so miles on it. This bike would run circles around it loaded down. I am impressed with everything about it. I don't think that will change.
