I'd run synthetic oil (I always do) and change it regularly, but your riding isn't considered "extreme service". Rotella T6 (5W-40) is a good/cheap/easy to get choice IMO. 5W flows better at low temps (almost any ambient temp is low temp compared to engine operating temp) and will give you better mileage as well because it flows easier as it is coming up to it's high (40) rating.

Do your regular maintenance. Lube the chain. Run Ethanol-free gas if poss and keep the tank as full as possible to reduce the change of moisture/rust forming in the tank.

Just basic stuff.
