I can't ride my new Rebel and it's killing me!

Urgh! I went for a nice ride today and it was AWESOME! About 85 miles or so, unplanned, but luckily I made it home only passing my Break-In Oil-Change target by 1/10th of a mile (did I just void my warranty by missing the 500 mile mark?).

I ordered some Honda oil-filters and Honda oil a few days back, but it still hasn't shipped (shakes fist at Amazon).

So now I wait. It's parked, so I don't "abuse" it, and I want to follow the guidelines. It's going to be a LONG week...

Well the first change isn't due to 600 miles so you are fine.

Oh, snap?! I was shooting for 500 like I knew something. I guess I should read (more of) my manual!

"Someone who isn't me" got her up to 94mph today on the speedo, which perfectly matched my GPS. That's pretty cool, most accurate speedo I've ever encountered. and counted.

I hope your trip meter matches your odometer.

I had a trip with mine and that trip would throw it over the oil change point. I asked my dealer if this was ok to do, or if I had to change before it.
They said it wasn't a big deal, so I had my first change at around 740 miles on the clock.
