Today was a spectacular day for me. It was my first time purchasing a new bike and San Jose BMW took great care of me (especially finding me the bike in the first place as they are scarce now on the west coast). BMW had great incentives as well for the end of the year so I got out of there with a great price out the door (added a 5 year warranty and 49L topcase as well).
Put my first 280 miles on the bike today starting with a bunch of twisties and somehow finding snow here in the silicon valley at the top of Mt. Hamilton. Had plenty of pucker factor taking my brand new bike over some completely iced roads with tight turns. I went with the ride-the-piss-out-of-it (after it warms up) method of breaking the bike in as was recommended by my sales guy. The bike feels so great. After starting with an 06' RT that had already had 60k on it, this new bike feels extremely tight and precise. The clutch and gearbox are the most noticeable differences for me along with the suspension which eats up the road much better than my old RT.
I made my appointment for the 600 mile service for Tuesday since I'm pretty sure I'll have at least that many miles by then. Happy with my camhead!
