Tire break in anyone

Took my bike out for a spin after a heavy week of rain sunshine and recorded this with my GoPro -HD

Yammy1 -love the scenary - where are you located? Everything is so green. Here is Texas we are in drought conditions so everything is dead. As for tire break in do you do anything special other than taking it easy for the first 50 miles?

I live up here in Washington State at Puget sound area and I like the green and weather.
I just short shift so I dont reach max rpm recommended by factory for the first 1000 miles, For the tires slow cornering until I have a good scrub on the tire edges before i hit those corner hard and do powerslides.
