Ever consider sending an oil sample to Blackstone?

I did when my bike hit 111,000 then again at 122,000 just to see if a catastrophic failure was imminent (there were no obvious indications that I could see). My reports came back excellent and give me the peace of mind to continue to run across the country and back.

I'm too superstitious for an oil report. I'm just going to keep doing exactly what I do and see how long it'll go. I have a parts bike with a low-mileage engine stored in the workshop in case I need to swap at some point, which I think makes my current motor pretty much indestructible. One of these days I should probably put in a new clutch, though, just for grins.

Fantastic, Im impressed!
I too always used simple oil and change around the same mileage.

Yes, I have posted many UOAs from the bikes below on Bob in the Oil Guy and a VOA of the oil I currently use.
