Breaking in Run

After installing the rack and cover a went for a 60 mile ride around the moors local to us. For running in I was told to keep the bike below 8000 rpms. This isn’t that difficult on this bike as it still shifts due to the low down grunt from the 1300cc engine. I am really liking the bike although I am not that keen on the HP rearsets. They may look fantastic but for me I am not entirely sure about them.  I did have one issue on the ride and that may be down to these rearsets, the quickshifter was hard to get to function in 4, 5 and 6th. I seemed to have to lift the gear lever up a lot more than my old bike to get it to work. Which for someone who isn’t very flexible like me could be a problem. I think I will adjust the height of the pegs and see if that makes a difference.
