I've put about 150 miles on the Gentleman's Express since the rebuilt engine and other modifications have been done. Maybe I'll put enough miles on in the next few days to be ready to do the next oil change!

(I believe in frequent oil changes when breaking in an engine. Oil's cheap - rebuilds are not.)
