K1600 Cruising RPMs

Hi all, been riding a lot on the Blue Ridge Parkway lately and found myself almost always in 2nd gear cruising around 5000 rpms. Does anyone know if that would be a problem for this bike? Also noticed that I now at 3000 miles have consumed the better part of a quart of oil.
Does anyone know if this is normal?
Thanking you in advance for any insights.
