Proper break in procedures

So I left the dealer today with a new double o xx.. (delivery tomorrow). They said 3-4 tanks of gas, no full throttle (internal thought: fight the urge, must fight the urge)..

That said,
What is the best recommended break in procedure, low throttle, then mid, 2-3 minutes each etc? Anything I should do other than not pin the throttle?

Only go 3/4? Make sure I hit all the rev bands?

I am worried I will pin it with normal riding. Kind of hard not to. Maybe some type of throttle stop is in order? Hey, we have a product. Break in period throttle stop.. Or some type of Valet mode (like cars) ECU map.

I know tomorrow they will give me a full breakdown once delivered, but I wanted the owners opinions

My dealer said it wasn't necessary and to change the oil after the 1st ride.

Change after my first 10 min ride or 1st tank of gas?

I will be riding all day in 2 weeks. Until then, I will be annoying my neighbors as I cruise down the street.

You'll find there you're not strong enough to be WOT the whole time; you'll have no choice but to mix it up.
