Hi Catbird - That's two good answers already. I'm in Arlington. What dealership did you order from?Cheers,Bill
Before I move on to the UCE forum, I do have some follow up questions...Based on what I read in the RE owner's manual that I downloaded, the break-in procedure didn't really strike me as all that unusual or difficult to go thru for the new owner. Unless I missed something, it seems reasonable -- much like I did for my 2011 Vespa.Even though I no longer have any interest in touring, per se, I may have an occasional desire to ride the RE 15-20 miles on the highway @ 65 mph. After break-in, should this type of use be avoided? If so, why?The dealership where I am purchasing the bike seems to routinely put 30-40 miles on their REs before declaring them approved for sale. Why is this? This is unusual from my experience with other brands.I'm certain that I'll have more questions later, but I'll try to put them in their proper forums.
Hi Catbird and I'm up the road from you in Opal. When u get your new military stop by and we'll go for a break in ride on the back roads towards Sperryville and return back on 211...
...Welcome Catbird. An REM will handle anything you need to ride on. Maybe not at the speed you think you need.
