I got somewhere around 3K before I had to change the oil in Louisiana when I rode back East to XSSE and the oil still looked pretty good.

That was mostly continuous highway miles without a lot of low speed, short hop and warm up/cool down riding that dumps fuel in the oil until the pistons get hot and fit the cylinders again. I was really glad I had good oil in the engine then and not a cheap belly full of wax.
