Took delivery of a new Harley Davidson Pan America Special. The local dealership got one as their “demo bike” and I bought it before it hit the sales floor.
Break-in started. First 50 miles are low revs (5000 cap), avoiding steady at one setting, and basically a “low stress” hour or so to let all the parts “get to know each other” as they say.
Dealer dropped the bike off yesterday during the work day, so I did the low rev part of the break-in after work.
Wisconsin is at a fine time of year for a quiet ride on backroads. More tractors on the road than cars. The break-in low speed seemed in itself prudent with the young spotted fawns with their mothers in attendance out crossing roads.
