    Default Breaking In Period on brand new bike?

    Hello! I just bought my first M109R, a brand new 2019. It had 1 mile when I drove it off the lot. :) I've never owned a new bike before, but I've heard/read a lot of different things about a break in period. There's the "keep it below 3500RPM and fluctuate speeds for the first 600miles" and what the owner of the shop that sold it to me said, "Just make sure it's warmed up well before you really get on it." Since I don't wanna screw the pooch and break it before I even start to have fun, I'm pinging the hive mind and would welcome your advice/experience on what I should/shouldn't do to get it right.
    Thanks!

    Here is a link to the service manual.

    This one is for the earlier year M109R's but 95% of the information is still applicable to the newer years.
