How many Hours or Miles???

When is everyone doing their first oil change???? I am going to MOAB this weekend and I only have about 13 miles on it. Do I ride it down in MOAB with the stock oil or do I put some miles on it before I go down and change it? If so how many more miles should I put on it????

thanks-

8.2 and 15.9. First time the bottom half was dark and the top was light.....I`m putting the plug back in when it turns light this time. I did the complete 20 hour service (less checking belt tension). Air filter was spotless, rotated and regreased ends.

The salesman told me 10 hr and the owner's manual said 20 hrs, so I turned it in at 16 hrs., as well. $280 for the 1st service...
