    All my kits black so no problems there ! Thinking of getting a new helmet though, just to spice things up a touch !
    Got my eye on the shoei xr1000 diabolic or the arai viper gt sinister. Both nice lids, just waiting for the shoei to come in in my size so i can do a direst comparison. And one thing i'm not looking forward to.....the running in period ! :( boring !

    I gave up waiting for a Shark RSR2 Black carbon helmet they still couldn't
    promise that I would have it before end of March so Ive just taken delivery
    of Arai Viper GT UK flag,fits great and very comfortable the only compromise
    is not having assured sharp 5 star rating like the RSR2 has but I'm happy :D

    I didn't bother. I rode it like I do now :lol:

    Will be very interested to hear the comparison. New bikes are always exciting :D

    For me running in the engine whether bike or car is paramount to the
    engines longevity and reliability,engine tolerances are at their most
    critical when new and must be allowed to bed in gradually,you may
    or may not getaway with not riding your engine in but I doubt whether
    the manufacturers would see it that way if you took it back under
    warranty with a seized up crank or piston before the run in period is up. :(

    I'm with you rowly, I've re-built enough high rmp 2 stoke motorbikes to know the benefits of a good breakin period in order to maximising engine life. Triumph don't just put it on the tank cos they feel like it! :)

    Absolutely spot on Chris, I have learned the hard way with a Mini A series engine
    that I had rebuilt with race spec components,was told to keep below 4000rpm
    for the first 500 miles, I didn't take this advice and it duly cost me another
    rebuild, beware!!! those of you who wish to risk not riding your pride and joy in.

    Very interesting Stu, It comes down to one question, who would you trust,
    Motoman, or Triumph's engineer's :?: I'm sure the jury will remain undecided
    on this subject for a very long time.

    I ran mine in over three nights to Hull and back on M62 BORING :? :? :?

    At 500 mile service the mecchanic and sales men all said it was ok to give it a little welly now so thats what I did but did not go mad till over the 1000

    Run's a dream now and at 3000 I felt it opened up even more ;) :) :D

    I think - in my complete mechanical numpty mind - that as long as you vary the loads on the engine and don't let it labour or keep it at constant throttle it should/will be OK.
