To check the oil I simply park in my usual place, open the oil filler, insert the dipstick, pull it out, and read it.

That's filler, not filter. You insert the dipstick through the opening you add oil through.
If you decide to get a dipstick kit, try to get a Drag Specialties one (I found mine on eBay) as shown here. All of the other ones I have seen go into the drain plug and you have to disassemble them to drain the oil. The Drag Specialties kit has it's own drain screw so you can change the oil without disturbing any of the fittings.

This involves a dip stick that is mounted near the bottom of the frame down tube on the right side, between the frame and the radiator ear. Almost invisible, but all in chrome, and does not interfere with changing oil. Been thinking about it for a while, and by the end of the month they should be for sale on wingovations. I have installed one on Cyborg as well, and it really is nice to be able to stand up and check the oil level, even on the side stand. If anyone is interested in one let me know. the initial manufacturing quantities will be fairly low
