Just make sure you take it easy. Yesterday a motorcycle rider died from an accident here in Stockholm. Even if we are experiencing temperatures above normal, the roads are still cold, slippery and dirty and the car drivers are not expecting us just yet.

Yes, I know there is no grip in the tarmac when cold. It is set to WET mode and the DTC was activated a couple times when I took off (ORANGE LED). Maybe there was some gravel on the tarmac. I have also tried the ABS, front and rear separately. The front brake I released when I felt pulses in the lever.
The QS works very nice.

Love those pictures, how many miles/km have you been able to put on your 899 so far?
I have done 300miles/500km so far. Half way to first service.
The Owners Manual says not rev over 5000 rpm the first 1000km. And then not rev over 7000 rpm the following 1500 km.
Anyone not following these recommendations? :rolleyes:

Just vary the revs and you'll be in good shape. I took mine to 10,000 before 600 miles a few times, because the dealer pretty much told me too. I'm at 1,100 miles now and haven't had a single issue.

how are the roads in sweden to ride?
The roads in Sweden are good. I live in Malmö in the south of Sweden, close to Copenhagen in Denmark. I used to live in Stockholm. There is difference between the Stockholm area and the Malmö area, and I dont know if DonSanto agrees but, there are more twisty narrow roads in the south of Sweden than there are in the Stockhölm area. Twisty narrow roads, is it not what we like? :)

The regions just north om Malmö is good (Småland) where you can find really nice roads. North of Stockholm is great. The further north you go the better it gets. Plus we've got the two publig GP tracks Bulten and Bogan LOL :D
