BMW engines with the opposed cylinders sticking out in the air are probably better than any other air-cooled motorcycle engines at tolerating that kind of abuse, but nevertheless, I'd avoid prolonged periods of no movement with an idling engine, unless you're doing it in cold weather.

I rode my R69S in a parade once, and finally shut it down and pushed it. Too much stopping and sitting.
