As suggested by the manual. Using best quality oil and filter, so should be just fine. Mostly commuting or early morning sport-riding.

I ride because my wife says it keeps me young and is better than if I get a girlfriend...

For me, I've always used the manual as a guide in the sense that I may change it more frequently. Being there are additives in motorcycle oil, (the oil is being used by both the engine and the transmission), as I feel the additives wear off, and make shifting notch'y or less smooth, that's when I usually change the oil.

I probably needed to say more often when I do track days, but I haven't been doing too may of these, lately.

I ride because my wife says it keeps me young and is better than if I get a girlfriend...

5,000 km intervals. Best thing you can do for the health of your engine.

Manual says 9300 miles or every year. I won't put that many miles on it in a year so it's every Spring for me.
