Checking Oil When She's Hot

It's been well established that the 1199 needs to have her oil checked frequently during break-in. According to the manual, you're supposed to check the oil when the bike is cold. I'm planning on riding her 300 miles on day one (and another 300 miles on day 2)...so my question is how am I supposed to check the oil when she's hot?
