  14. Do i count as a GPX rider? im more or less a ex-GPX rider.
  15. Hi Technik, congrats on your new purchase! Just wanted to mention one thing that I wish I had known before I got my GPX...

    The manual says that when you break her in, don't go over 4000 rpms for the first 800 kms. Right! Follow those instructions and you will be puttering along at about 60kms an hour.

    Bypass feeling guilty about hurting your new bike and have a read of this before you pick her up and ride her home: https://netrider.net.au/forums/viewtopic.php?t=24764&highlight=breaking+period

    *nods encouragingly*
