I just rode my new bike back from MA which was 980
miles so I am pretty sure it is time for a good lube
but I am not sure after that how often I should lube
the chain?
Any advice?

Inspect it often.
Clean it when it gets dirty.
Lube it when it gets dry.

Google "motorcycle chain maintenance".

A quick spray after almost every decent ride is a good plan.

Lubing the chain after a ride means the chain is warm, and has some time to make its way into the chain links.

Lubing it before a ride means the chain is cold, and doesn't have time for the lube to make its way in before being centrifugally thrown out.

Of course you don't feel like squatting down next to your bike when you're just back from a ride, but that is the best time to do it.
