I'd say do your first oil AND filter change at 100 miles then 200 miles then follow normal intervals. Use regular DINO oil for this period. I wouldn't recommend the switch to synthetic until around 1,000 miles or so if that is your perogative.

You can use automotive oils but they're not "specifically" designed for motorcycles.
