Good work finding and fixing the problem! I don’t think anyone can accurately predict what might happen next. Since you’re “stuck” with it now I would recommend you ride it like normal and keep an eye on the oil and any new strange noises. With any luck after a few thousand miles you’ll forget all about this bad beginning.

What kind of engine life would you guys think that I'll have? I ride pretty conservative and sometimes get a bit spirited.
Is there anything else that I should be wary of?
Once again, I appreciate any advice and I hope this helps others as well.
Motorcycling, it's more than Adventure....
