Bwahahahahahahahahahaaha. Famous last werdz. Once bitten, the power bug is hard to shake. Even on the big DS bikes I would imagine.
Do NOT ever get on a Ducati. The light weight and torque curve will ruin you. It is not the most powerful bike I own, nor anywhere near the fastest, but the power delivery and quick handling will blow your mind on back roads.

I do like the looks of the 800 better than the bigger bike, but when you pack in 400cc more engine into the chassis, things get busy in a hurry. How does the weight difference feel to you?

Trophy, when you having a bike detailing clinic? I'll volunteer the KLR as a test case...



Edit: Took the Tiger back to the shop... :sigh:

(cause they didn't finish the accessories... Only got lights, heated grips, and tank bag installed. Doing crash bars and skid now... And I'm back on the Explorer. They really need more tension on the throttle. It twists WAY too easily!!!!!)

Best I can remember, the ones I rode were sorta revy. Would take a while to break one in by keeping the RPM's down

If the engine is running, and the miles are accumulating, how does that affect the time needed to break one in?

It takes longer to knock those miles out at slower pace :)

break it in like you want it to run. Remember, it's not a KLR, it shouldn't have a heavy appetite for Rotella....

Why are we discussing break in? It's simple, ignore the lawyer printed owners manual. A few heat cycles which is easy and very good this time of year then run it!! If it breaks it was going to do so regardless of how you broke it in. I've took a GSXR from the show room, added 100 miles on the street and went to a race track and banged the rev limiter all day long. Not a problem. If you baby it you risk the chance of ring glazing against the cylinders and it'll never seat in but will be weak and a oil user. Today's tolerances only need a few heat cycles then the enginevis good to go. You must load a new engine do not baby it or lug it.

Run it if you got over a 100 miles on it, it's good to go.
