Just picked up my new Interstate today and dealer said to take it easy for the first 600 miles for the break in period and not do much highway riding. Anyone have any tips for best break in. Also was wanting to see what everyone has for aftermarket exhaust and what the opinion is on what you have. Just started looking around, but I kinda like the looks of the sampson warlord pipes, anyone have any comments on these.

What I did was unusual. I went for a 1200 mile, 4 state ride when mine was new. I did the first ~700 miles on back roads at varying RPM's with a oil/filter change at 590 miles. I opted for synthetic oil. I feel the bike is running good and shifts smoother now. I finished the ride with both interstate and back roads.
