Talking to a friend today who lives over 150 miles away.

He said he would pop over for a visit when he collects his new T120.

I suggested going accross country on smaller slower roads, would 150 miles each way at 70mph to 75mph affect running in the new engine?

Wondering what others would suggest.

On any new bike you need to vary the RPM, gear selection as much as possible. At a steady speed you are not doing your internals a good turn. Just for the first 500-1000 miles shift, slow down , speed up, back it down in every gear the bike will love it.

That's what I was thinking, thanks for the comments.
