Default Simulated Break In Period

I was thinking, is there any way to simulate the break in period for an engine? Like maybe pop the back wheel up and run the bike for 30 minutes at ~15 mph. Then, let it rest, repeat for 3-4 tanks? I realize without the weight on the bike, 15mph wouldn't be 15 mph. Also if the speedo is mounted on the front tire it would be impossible to tell the speed unless the speedo was moved. Maybe just go to 1/2 throttle and let it run.

It's definitely not that I don't want to ride my (future) MB, it's just it would take a very long time for me to ride 300-600 miles at under 15mph, what with school and work and things.

Does anyone know a fast way to break in an MB?

By the way the speed and miles needed to ride for the break in time were from King's Motorbikes.
