Linky not work?
In '78 I bought a new Yamaha XS1100 and rode that thing for 50k miles all over the western states. Loved that bike, probably my favorite of all time. It was the first new bike I'd bought so I was determined to follow break-in to the letter. Drove that thing so gently for the first 1000 miles and guess what, it always used oil, about 1 qt/500 miles. In hind-sight it needed to be broken in like motoman suggests... oh well, water under the bridge.
What happened yesterday?
