Hey, I'm with 'ya. I followed just about the exact same oil change schedule during my break-in period. I somewhat clean and re-lube my chain at about the same interval and change my oil every 1500 miles, new filter every other time.
I should clean my air filter and check my battery more often.
Washing? Once a year, maybe, no matter how dirty it gets. My tall aftermarket windshield is so plastered with bugs I might have well have just made one out of a piece of sheet metal.
It looks like a piece of abstract art with hues of yellow, green, red, brown and black; the medium being polycarbonate and bug guts.
I do, however, always keep my headlight cover, tail light and all reflectors clean. I look well over the top of the windshield so the bugs really don't matter. When Winter hits, I'll take it off, soak it in the bathtub for an hour or so to loosen things up and then clean it for the next season.
