I just use a big drain pan under the bike and don't worry where the oil goes. Then I take a rag and wipe down anything the oil touched and screw on the new oil filter. A little used oil that hits some of the frame just helps rust proof it better. Also I use filters that are packed with filter medium and don't hold that much oil to begin with and also has a good anti-drain back valve that keeps most of the oil in the filter. If you have a lot of oil in your filter when you screw it off then you may not have much in the can in the way of filtration media.
