In addition to oil changes and new tires, from 0-10,000 just one set of spark plugs. Currently at 71,000 kms on my '09 (44,000 miles) so to answer the "10,000 miles and beyond" part of your question:
(all converted to miles)
14,800 - replaced plugs, air filter, brake fluid
22,300 - replaced all brake pads
24,200 - new battery, chain, plugs (valves in spec)
24,000 - replaced coolant
29,200 - replaced both high & low beam bulbs (burned out days apart) replaced clutch cable
34,700 - replaced chain & sprockets, rear brake pad
41,000 - replaced plugs, air filter, coolant, brake fluid and ignition coil from #1 cylinder (valves adjusted)
I think this illustrates a pretty short list. Everything on it is wear out parts, no different than oil or tires. With the exception maybe of the clutch cable - which should be noted was replaced as a "just in case" before a long trip only to find, on detailed inspection, it was still in good shape. And, the ignition coil - which really counts as the only thing that "broke" on this bike through 71,000 kms!
Always trust your cape.
