First 500 kms moderate accelerating, not over 4000 rpm
to 1000 kms accelerating with more vigour ;-) to 5500 rpm
Over 1000 kms I reached top speed....
1000 km interval was at 1499 kms... which was after a weekend in Sauerland.

I dare say, the bike is no lazy bugger...

Same from me ... start slowly on the first runs. However, i gave her a good kick every now and then even on the running in  :305:

I think most important is that the engine is warm enough before you ride the higher Speeds  :305:
