    owner of a new '18 109 BOSS for about 4 hrs now. thing is a powerhouse. rode it from the dealership(bout 70mi.) passing is effortless, even in top gear, amazing. of course, im used to my last bike, the M50. the difference is black and white. as for oil changes, the manual calls for 40W, while the dealer told me they only use 50W. any input on this would be helpful.
    Anyways, looking forward to getting to know all of you. I'm only 70mi into my 109 ownership. but it looks to be a promising tenure.

    check out your local state chapter for local rides and events.
    I and many people use Shell Rotella T6 as far as oil.

    Check out page 1-7 which talks about the break in procedure for your new M109R.

    Welcome and your next post will probably be about the enormous amount of engine breaking and the twitchy throttle. Some like it but most either flash the ECU or put on a TRE (make sure you get one to keep your OEM gear indicator). Makes it a much smoother ride at least for me anyway.
