Oil Flush - Does anybody do this or is it just me?
This is not a Oil type Post
As I've mentioned in previous posts I bought a 2014 Cross Country last December.
I did an oil change with-in a month of owning it and I did 4000 miles (now at 26K) and decided it was time to change it again but this time, because I'm not the original owner and who knows what was done before I owned the bike, I decided to do what I call an oil flush.
I replaced the filter and oil with Rotella T5 rode it for about 100 miles and then drained the oil and put in new Rotella T5. I was amazed at how dark the oil got with just the 100 miles on it. It looks like the oil worked well at cleaning up the engine.
I've done this on some older cars I've owned with similar results but usually at 50K miles.
Again this is not an oil post to say what oil is better than another oil (use what you are comfortable using) I was just wondering if anyone else does this. It basically cost me an extra $19 dollars to do this so it certainly isn't expensive to do.
What's your opinion?

Born in the deepest jungles of India, I was raised by a friendly bear, until I was kidnapped by a pack of unruly baboons who taught me the finer points of swing jazz, all the while being stalked by an incompetent python and an evil but mis-understood tiger... Ummm, wait a minute, that's the Jungle book, no I was raised just outside of St. Louis, But...in the deepest jungles of a middle class neighborhood .
