the manual that came with the bike has a maintenance interval of 20k for both the standard maintenance and the "bmw" inspection. 20k between oil changes? that seems madness to me??

I think the maintenance and inspection are out of phase so you are supposed to do a maintenance or inspection every 10,000km - eg service 10k, inspect 20k, service 30k etc. I also believe you are supposed to change the oil at both so the oil change interval is 10,000km or 1 year whichever comes first.
FWIW I change my semi-synth oil 1/year regardless of mileage - although I've never done more than 13,000kms in a year.
