most electronics fail...within....
Back in the day we turned on new pc's in the computer room and left them on for three or four days solid before giving them to people. It seemed that if a circuit board was going to fail it would fail in the first few days after getting hot. Solder joints, etc,. PC's that would pass this initial test would end up running for years left on 24/7 as long as they weren't on the floor collecting dust in the fan. Electronic failures are not UN-COMMON.
So you bought a brand new bike and decided to enter an Iron Butt rally. Seems like user error on your part. Do you put on brand new tires and go riding down the freeway at + double nickel speeds? To you change the oil, filter , get on and ride 100 + miles and hour and never check for leaks?
Wake up - don't blame the brand, change your attitude and plan for success not failure.
There will be other rallies, put 20K on your bike, work out the kinks then your probability of riding 2k more will be much higher.
