I'm taking delivery of a new 2018 Africa Twin Adventure Sport this afternoon but I won't be getting the owners manual until later next week. Do you know where to get an electronic copy of the owners manual and also how do you run-in the engine on the new bike. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
