The day we picked up our bikes, two 2006 F650GS's, we had planned a ride just to break in the engines. BMW calls the break in the running in or the first time out. The Riders manual stated that you should not exceed 5k rpms and "Try to do most of your riding on twisting, fairly hilly roads rather than high-speed main roads and highways." Obviously you have a different bike so like 1bwmfan said, just follow the instructions in the "Riders Manual" and the engine should do well. At your first service I doubt that the stealership will change all of the oil, they will probably just change the filter and drain what ever oil is in the bottom of the engine and not the oil tank. I've got 38k miles on my Rotax with no issues. Congrats on your new purchase. Regards, Jim.
