It is just another path .. possibly a better one? And even 'experienced' people over look things sometimes .. so no worries there.
The oil change thing .. I've resorted to riding some distance .. find a dirt road .. dig a hole let the old oil in that hole .. move bike away .. cover hole with sand ..
and refill with the new oil.. Not the best way for the environment .. but the oil actually helps stabilise the dirt road ..
However if you buy the new oil at a garage then negotiate with them to dispose of the old oil ... more expensive than a supermarket but you get to get rid of the old oil .. and they will usually supply a container for the old oil..
