Damn guys...Check your oil!!!

Ok, I have just picked up a second bike in less than a week which was run dry of oil.
Come on folks, before you swing a leg, take a second and look down will ya!
I need the business but damn.....it's going to be an expensive repair. One guy, today's guy has already bought a new 2011 engine and the first guy has bought my spare head and a 685 kit to get him running.

Yes I appreciate the business but.....please check your oil levels!

Yeah, I think my frequency of oil checking could be classified as a "disorder".

My SV650 uses more oil than my 08 KLR. How is that possible? Because I rip on her hard! My DRZ with 450cc kit used even more. Why? Because it's a thumper and I ripped on her hard! I had to do oil changes every 500 to 750 miles and it needed the heavy synthetic weight oil.
If I have to add a little cheap oil in my 1500 mile oil change interval for the KLR it doesn't bother my one bit.
With that, I'm going to go check my oil right now on all my bikes because it's been awhile since I looked in the glass.
Thanks!
