Miles in between oil change

I just ordered oil and a filter for the new wing. Ordered it from Amsoil Bob, its always a pleasure doing business with him. I should have asked him, but I forgot. For those of you who are using Amsoil, how many miles are you going between oil changes?

I go about 7.5k and look at it. If it seems dirty I change it, if not I don't go past 9k.

I wish I had the time to ride more, but since I ride less than ten thousand miles a year I change my synthetic oil once a season, regardless of miles.

when you should change your oil is in the owners manual and there is nothing in your owners manual that says you can extend the mileage because you are using synthetic oil. I personally have nothing against anyone changing oil at a higher mileage than recommended after all its your wing

A good long ride can clear your mind, restore your faith, and use up a lot of gas

My 1800 has about 5700 miles on the last oil change, all of it high speed highway while on tour....

shell rotella T5, looks just like it did when I poured it in the engine.

it will get changed in a couple of days before I start out on my next tour...

Probably not many can remember when Mobile 1 first came out. In our cars/trucks, we were told to run it 25K miles(yes-25,000), change the oil filter(they held a quart back then), add a quart and go another 25K before changing!!!!!!!
Anyway, while under warranty, I would change oil(whatever you use) as recommended by the vehicle manufacturer.
After that, I see no reason not to run synthetic for at least 10K miles!

On my wife's car, a 2007 Pontiac Vibe, it has had synthetic of some brand since the 1st change at the dealer.

After that, it got changed whenever our son was close by, about once a year

since we got back together again, I change it Dec 1st or there abouts....
and usually, it is somewhere between 8000-10000 miles...

so far, the oil coming out looks almost as good as the oil going in.

The car oil setup is different than a bike configuration. On a car the transmission is separate and has its own fluid. 10k on synthetic is nothing for a car. On a bike, the engine oil is also used for the wet clutch and transmission. More of a chance of getting clutch fibers and gear chips on a bike, as a result I do not go more than 4000 miles on any type of oil, don't want all that "stuff" getting into my valvetrain, which will be much more costly than an oil change.
It would be nice if the wing had a setup like the Honda CRF250/450Rs do where there is separate oil systems, one for the engine/valvetrain and one for the transmission.
