My M1100S arrived on Saturday and it rained for the first time in 2 weeks.
Woke up Sunday, blue skies, sun, perfect. A couple of phone calls later and four of us were meeting up for a 200 mile round trip.
Within 5 miles everything felt right (this is the first bike I've owned in 5 years and my first 'upright'). Lots of back roads, highways for approx 5% of trip.
It just felt great, planted, grunty, comfortable and the brakes are going to be awesome for track days!
I'm dropping it back to the dealer today (Monday here in NZ) to have its pipes fitted (Devil carbon) and to have my radar detector moved.
Alternatively, if the sun is out, I may take it for another 200 mile blast then have the first service & pipes done together.
Are you guys running them in or thrashing them from the crate?

i'm running mine in like every new bike i've ever had before giving it full whack (that doesn't mean i'm always watching the display).

i plan on keeping this bike for a long time and lots of mods as $$$ allows.
lower gearing helps a lot during break-in on the new monsters.

& i love the DP steering damper.
