Changing Brake Fluid

Fellow militant Airheads, As far as general maintenance goes how often do ya'll change your brake fluid?

The correct answer to this can vary with the amount of humidity in your local air. The manual says do it once a year. You change the brake fluid because it absorbs water from the air. As it does so it gets darker, also its boiling point goes down. This water can eventually damage parts. As I write this I have this vision of someone with a low level of anal retention insisting on using the most exotic oil but not changing the fluid because it's not yuppie. These are the folks whose Airheads retire early as being too expensive to fix.
