How often should I change the engine oil on my 09 696 prior to the engine being broken-in?

My bike has less then 100 miles on it ( 68 miles as of right now ). I've read that new motorcycles need to have their oil/ oil filter changed several times prior to the 1,000 mile mark to ensure that any metal flakes from the engine parts which are shed during the break-in period are cleared from the oil and engine. Is this true? If not should I just wait until the 600 mile servicing to have the oil changed? I know how to change the oil on a bike because I've done this on my old ninja 250r so performing this procedure would not be beyond my n00b skill sets. I just want to make sure I am not over doing it, flushing money down the toilet or potentially damaging the bike by changing oil to often.

PS -I've read the FAQ's on oil changes but its an old faq and does not address my concerns.

Hi

Bought the same bike last year and didn't change the oil until the 600 miles service (where they did) and everything was in perfect order.

I find it too much if you ask me.
