Yesterday, turning on the bike I pushed the start button too short.
The engine didn't start, but since I was a little in a hurry I pushed it twice again
before the dash had completed its check.

The result was that instruments did not reset before starting again the check,
so I was @0 rpm but the dash indicated @4000.
So the hand checked @4000 rpm over the red limit.

It solved itself by repeating twice the proper procedure to start the bike:
Key to OFF position
Waiting for the dash check
starting engine.

I had to repeat it twice because the first time it reset @0 to 2000rpm.
The second time it was ok.

Probably will never happen to someone else, or never happen again in the world face, but, in case it will, google will find it for the squid who will panic against this occurrence.

Motorcycle's with the power to heal themselves... amazing!

The best bet is to let that wiz-bang instrument cluster do it's thing before powering up the engine. Life is way to short to always be in a hurry. Sometimes you've got to stop and take a good look around, so that the good stuff doesn't pass you by. Besides, its fun to watch that instrument light up... like a mad pinball machine enticing you to put a quarter in and play. Sweet.
