The stick sits on top of hole when checking and the X is held vertical.
Between the lines is good.
When I do an oil change I always check to see how much oil is returned.
I displace the anti-drain back valve and when that stops draining I usually punch a hole in the top to drain more. A week or two.
At some time many years ago I filed a mark on the stick when it was on the kick stand.

This makes it easy to check now.
I rarely check it, change oil at 5k miles. The first 100k miles I changed oil at 4k miles interval.
On serious runs on the Interstate check more often.
4qts total and the filter is prefilled..
