where oh where did the oil go?

I've never (on 5 SV's) had one use any oil, but I've blown up 3 motors
(bone stock) with under 5K on them...I'd love to know the secret to
getting 80K out of one!

My stock '99 SV will start out on Saturday with oil at the top fill
line. After two long track days in Florida heat at Jennings GP, the oil
drops just below the bottom fill line. The motor has 80,000 miles, and
I'm sure it's blowing by the rings.
