My  understanding of seating rings involves cyclical loading and lighter
loading with cool-off periods.
That's what I do.  Steady state riding on the slab makes this more

Having said that, I don't know how essential this is after the first several
hundred miles from new.
I'd be curious to know what someone like Tom C thinks ie real world
observations on Boxers.
Plus, he has an R1100S.
