Oil change gunk

Doing the 5,000km oil change on the R1200R. While pouring out the drain pan i noticed some strange lumps bubbling out. I ran it through a filter to see if there was anything to worry about and besides some small bits of crud there was, what seemed to be, a leaf! Okay, i'll assume it is just a gasket getting worn in, but it's still not what you really want to find in your vital lubricants.

Last change before i can switch to synthetics. BMW recommends 10,000km before the engine is actually broken in (?!).
