Mike, your friend doesn't know shite about suspension, you'll be fine on that pony, just take it easy. I know you're going to want to crack it open, as long as you wait until you're on a nice open stretch of highway before you do so, you're fine. Respect the bike and take it slow for the first few thousand miles with the little bit of WOT (wide open throttle) here and there and you'll be fine.
As was mentioned, 3 hours is nothing bud, you'll be fine, if you start to get sore, stop at a gas station, refill and have a drink, you'll be home in no time.
