I ask only because I'll have to ride 1000km on the first day to get the bike home.
I never baby a new bike but I also don't redline them and I try to vary rpms. I believe strongly in this method and have always had good results. I'd also suggest stopping a couple times on your ride so it can go through a couple thermal cycles.
To be honest it might be a better idea to just rent or borrow a truck and bring it home if it's that far away.
Either way good luck and enjoy. It's a great bike.
