Question Service books - paperwork, paperwork

Ducati seem to think that a bike has ended it's useful life after 5 years as the service book only goes up to 5 years? (at least thats how long my 998 one lasts)

What do people do when the service book is full of stamps? (not green shield or co-op or even those with the Queen on)

Just keep all the service bills in a nice folder?

More importantly as a buyer what would you expect to see service records wise on an older Ducati?

I just kept the receipts

I'd be happy with that if I was buying a bike

I often forget to take the service booklet to the dealer.
The receipts are more important imo as they prove what you've changed.
I also write on the back of the service slips, to record all the bits like oil changes, chain & sprockets, etc, but this is more for my benefit than anyone elses.

Anyone can get a stamp put in the book for the cost of a pint to the right person, and for me the appearance of the bike generally shows how well its been looked after.
If the service book was missing though I'd be suspicious
