I don't believe it, but I actually managed to ride 4200 miles since I got the bike, which I'm very proud of given that I ride for fun, on weekends, not for commute. I guess I had a lot of fun! :yesnod:
Anyway, some feedback:
The bike just got an oil change and chain clean + adjustment at the dealer.
The main difference is that the 'bucking' (forward/backward rocking) has gone away completely. I suspect it has to do with the chain adjustment.
I do not think it is a psychological thing - the bike just runs much smoother..
