Problem is I found myself having so much fun that I kinda forgot about the break-in. My concern is that by riding it harder than I probably should've that maybe I caused harm to the engine? Thoughts?
As Montesa suggested, check out NachtFlug's thread. Basically, don't baby it, change the oil/filter early (<50 miles!), then again around 500 miles, then just go with what the book says.
