Should see some stay in there better than others.

That may well be the case, but I just don't see it as being that critical from my perspective. The sceduled maintenance calls for 600 mile oil changes. Since I am mostly riding on the street, I change my oil at 1,000 miles. I don't really start seeing a loss until I am into the last half of the 1,000, so topping it off once or twice before the next change isn't all that bad in my book.
