Coolant questions

Good morning.

I've had my '01 Classic for around 5 years now. When I first got it, I had to take it into the shop for a coolant leak. Since then, I haven't done a flush or even filled it with coolant. There haven't been any problems yet, even last year when riding in 100 degree weather for hours.

In the last two months, I've ridden more than I did over the last two years. I'm worried about getting stranded with an overheated bike.

How often do you folks add more coolant, what kind of coolant do you like, and how often do you recommend a flush?

Full disclosure: I just decided to ask this morning over my first cup of coffee and I haven't actually checked my MOM yet. I plan to, but other opinions are always useful.

Thanks, folks.
