Hi. I am up to the wordy post challenge (or at least I am used to it!).
I don't have anything to offer but an understanding ear. I am also picking up a NEW 07 GT this Friday! Same sort of feelings, coming off of my bullet-proof K75S and onto a GT, yeah what a RIDE! Can't wait!
I am in southern WI, where did you buy the bike? And I see you are in Ohio, so driving down through there, there is a BMW dealer in Barrington IL. If you wanted to get picky and have the 600 service done, maybe they can arrange for it. But no idea how long it takes, what if they find something they want to fix and might open a can of worms. I guess if you explain that to them they will keep anything really "exploratory" in nature to a minimum, maybe just see if they'll do an oil change only? If you have a favored BMW shop near where you live, I'd consider just driving the extra miles and get it done at home.
edit, sorry I see you saif minnie-apples on the pickup, to Akron OH, Barrington might be about the right place, not sure what your timing would be like, would they be open and time to do it? I think you are thinking about the same as me, 600 miles, but it's an 07 bike and the oil might need a change just based on TIME, usually they want an oil change at least once a year, and depending on build date you might be creeping up on 2 yr old oil......
