Mil8 3 Qts low

First thanks to those that posted I was reved up,now to explain,the bike was bought new in sept 2016 Roadglide S 2017
At 5K bike would white smoke until warmed up took it in twice no issue small repairs like valve seals, the third time new top end except heads. Cylinders ,pistons, rings, new, case closed have a 6 yr esp so now it’s time for a 10K two weeks ago.After We rode 1500 miles two weeks ago bike was fine got home oil was down a qt dealer said they did that on purpose said it help with the oil issues this week rode another 100 mi down another full qt shifts fine, no smoke, nothing wet no leaks
I’m just going to add and ride until end of season saw a CVO RG two time # 1 marked down 2500 ish got me thinking until this came up thanks again, don’t buy these bikes with out protection plans in place

I may be on a similar track as you. I was touring on my 18' 107. I checked the oil at 3kish, down a qt. I filled it. I didn't think much about it cause I was a dip shit and dint verify the dealer service at 1k, as i usually do... preoccupied. So I checked it yesterday with 4600 on it and its about 1/2 qt low.
I don't bog the 6th gear or anything...etc.

Once I get settled in one place I'll do my usual and figure it out. Or at least listen to what the bike is telling me.
