I tend to extend my oil change intervals somewhat on all my vehicles, the oil usually stays clean anyway and it comes out looking pretty much the way it went in. I think part of that is because i do very few short trips, most of my mileage is my 70 mile highway commute so it's very easy service, not a lot of the cold starts/ short trips/ never warmed up issues that ruin oil quickly. Probably this is why my vehicles live long lives, current record holder is my Subaru, 320,000 + miles and still going, and going, and going..
My wife has a 1.2 mile commute, her car has 1/10 the mileage mine has but the oil is dirtier in 2000 miles than mine is after 10,000.
My last few cars all went over 250,000 miles, previous record was a Civic with 298,000 when the camshaft end broke off at 90 mph on the interstate. I gave it away, my friend stuck in a $500 engine from a junkyard and it went over 500,000 mileson the original clutch too, mine was much better than the one that came on the engine with 50k miles that he bought so he used it. 500k miles is pretty good life for a clutch :-)
I haven't worn out a bike yet but I'm trying, my Vision has almost 66,000 miles...
