is every year really needed? I am putting maybe 1000-1500miles per year on this machine.
did oil change yesterday, after 15months from when last one was done.
oil looked super clean. I am using rotella T5 blend, 15w-40.

I would do at least once a year! I generally do Two- three changes a year. Even if only did 1000miles a year I would minimum change once a year.

Even in cars they recommend at least once a year. Thought process is to get rid of any contaminants that have built up.
And there is the same/similar argument about leaving oil over winter but if I changed recently I avoid doing that again.

With those lower miles hopefully the rides are longer. Good for the bike and you!!
