Taking it slow the many miles?

New member from Norway. Ordered the black edition couple of weeks ago and will pick it up when snow leaves. The price here is 6500USD (MSX). Guess that's the reason why it didn't get as popular here as first expected.

Quick question:
I've heard the right thing to do when getting a new bike is to drive it on low throttle the first xxx miles to get the engine to settle.. Did you do this, or is it just something people say but doesn't follow? I've also ordered the Tyga Slip On exhaust. Should I wait some miles before mount it? I am stoked about the bike and have been following the forum some months already. Would like the bike to get as good treatment as possible.

I'm not totally useless. I can be used as a bad example!

Go honda black!'

I rode soft for about 25 miles then hard since. Did oil change at 50 and full oil spinner and screen cleaning plus oil at 250. At my 600 valve check im doing oil again.
