I've never understood these "breaking in" heat comments.

Seems to me that if the bike gets 40 mpg when new, and it gets 40 mpg when broken in, it used the same amount of heat to power the bike, thus generating the same heat.

Is there some fouling of fins or carbon deposits somewhere that might account for this?
