:jump Hi Everyone...... I just got a call from my dealer!!! I am able to pick up my brand new Liquid Silver / Black R1 tomorrow Morning - Friday the 24th of October, 2003!!!!!

Do you guys perhaps have any advice on how to run the bike in properly, what mods I should do etc..... I have already added a seat cowl, airflow screen as well as a Yoshi Tri Oval Slip on! What is the best way to run the bike in????

Welcome to the forum. Do at least 3 heat up and complete cool
down cycles with in the first 100-200 miles. Don't keep riding at
one constant speed. Vary your speeds. It won't hurt to blip the
throttle a time or two. Just don't get crazy with it. Change the oil well before the 600 mile mark like the manual says.
