Default Honda VTX 1300R tires and Oil

for owners or mechanics who work on these, how long should I expect the tires to last on a new bike, I have put on 7000 miles so far this summer on them, I asked the salesman the other day and he told me probably 15000, but he is a salesman. How long have yours lasted? Also do you change your oil more than the every 8000 miles recommended, ThanksI did have it changed at 600 miles, and I changed it at 4000, owners manual says at 600, then every 8000, but I like changing oil more oftenI am pretty much a putter, I like to open it up now and then, but mostly puttering down alot of back country roads. I am not hard on the bike in any way, well maybe sometimesI stand corrected, I have put 6000 miles on them

I don't know anyone who lets their Oil go 8000 miles, even running Synthetic. As for tires, Your mileage will depend on the Tire compound, the Bike, and Your riding style. I have never gotten close to 10,000 miles on any tire but I like to corner carve.
