It has been said, usually by the guy you don’t really trust fully,
“break it in the way you’re going to ride it”. We are used to breaking-in bikes
properly, but without any other option, that’s exactly what we did with this bike. A perfectly good, brand new bike, pulled apart, modified with
bolt-on parts, reassembled then hammered on repeatedly. There’s nothing quite
like taking a brand new bike to the race track and bouncing it off the rev
limiter, sliding sideways, banging into other people, crashing, etc. It feels good and bad all at the same time.
