Hi Jimmy!

I've been following the various ownership reviews here, and am now getting used to the fact that RE ownership may not be the smoothest, but it certainly is a pleasure.

Is there any update on the listed problems?

Thanks,
Sam

P.S. I should be joining the TB500 group soon

I recently got a TBTS 350. Can some one educate me on the initial running period and the optimal speed prescribed etc.
