The 500 is a race bike and the intervalls in the manual refer to that kind of use of the bike. I firmly believe you could give those timings a bit of a slack with good consiousness if you use the bike for dual sport purposes. They now have 1,5 liters of oil in the engine in comparison with the 1,3 liters of the 530 and 525. Ideally you should follow the manual, but I wouldn't worry if I went longer on an extended weekend trip.
