Is that level low enough to cause damage? And if so what kind? Im super upset at myself for letting this happen. I guess I need to make a better habit of checking it.

On a side note, while I was at Wally's (I digging HATE Wally's with a passion but they have the oil I use, no one else in this tiny town does) I bought myself one of those ATV seatpads. Figured it would be useful on the trip tomorrow. Anyone else like or dislike these things?

if you can still see oil in the view glass you are ok... it's when you can't see oil at all that's an issue.

How many miles have you put on the bike since your last oil change... dates don't really mean much. I changed my oil a month ago and had to redo it this week bc i reached 2k miles
