Default reached breakin point

Like I said in my intro, my 2008 xl883l has 286 miles when i bought it in December. Since then I have gotten out on a few around town rides on days of good weather on the weekends. That means that I just reached 500 Miles!!! break in is done, 11 ish years after rolling off the line...


It has fresh fluids before i took possession so, not doing any fluid changes till 1k.
