The manual just read something like take it easy for 300 miles and no reference to rpms, speed or anything else.
Well 91 isn't regular

The battery doesn't have to power a lot, starter and a clock, maybe initial cycling of the fuel pump.

The only break in procedure I use is to basically ride them like I'm going to ride them. (Which for me is pretty easy anyway). My bike will never see redline, and will probably never see over 6 thousand rpms.
