It's a pleasure!

I started off with a 2008 GSX-R600 and enjoyed every bit of those 10K+ miles I put on her... I've always wanted a Duc; the dream is merely a few days away!

First of all THANK YOU for your service and when you get on your R&R with that new 848 you are gonna love it and you deserve it. Thanks again :D

Thanks! I don't typically enjoy breaking-in an engine... I'm sure that'll change with this v-twin!

That flight from Dubai to the US blows, but at least you'll be coming back to a great ride. I came home this past June and picked mine up...absolute joy

Congrats and thanks for serving!

You should be able to get well beyond 600 miles in 15 days, and it's worth the wait......get the oil/filter/crush washer for the 600 mile change when you pick her up if you're the DIY type, save precious riding time not trying to get that service scheduled.

And if you do decide to take care of the first service get your blue loctite and allen wrenches and go over every fastener you can get to at the same time, or you will almost certainly lose a few :D

Have fun next week and get back safe after this next round.

Shults-z, were are coming from and going to if you don't mind me asking? If you plan on breaking her in on the way to LA I would suggest having proitalia do your service and then hitting up angels crest highway. I don't think it's snowed up there yet because we've had a very warm fall. That road has some serious twisties like it was made for ducs. Then there is Gmr, the snake, Ortega and mt palomar. Those are some of my favorite twisty roads down here.

I was planning on doing the wrenching myself. Nothing like getting to know a bike by doing the maintenance on your own!
