The 600 mile break in below 6k RPMs and then the subsequent 900 miles limiting me to 7k RPMs. I traded a 2008 S2R 1000 that I bought 4 months ago in on the SF 848 and I am extremely happy with the decision. The gain in power is noticeable even though I have to keep the revs low. I'll be riding all over the place trying to rack up the miles. I usually go for the bigger engine bike but considering I come from riding Harley's this is a nice increase. A friend of mine has a 2010 SF 1098 and he has a tough time riding around town or behind the inevitable slow person in the twisties, bike spitting and sputtering b/c all it wants to do is go all out. I'm really digging the wet clutch as well as for 1 it's something I don't have to bling and I do like it being quieter so I can hear the motor. I'm not yet sure which exhaust I'll go with but I'll be looking and reading here to see what folks say.
