Just took delivery of my bare bones LC. Love the bike so far (my first GS).
I have broken in several sport bikes and never had the idle so erratic when breaking in the motor. The GS when warmed up and idling is a bit erratic meaning that the tach needle is a little jumpy. In my estimation the idle fluctuates around 50-100 rpm at a steady pace. No surging. Is this normal/abnormal or just a break in quirk. ODO = 400+ miles.
She also runs fine and smooth when moving.
I can accept the fickle idle if its just a boxer idiosyncrasy.

That sounds normal
