Default Brake fluid

A friend and I were discussing brake fluid as my bike is 10 yrs old and he said I should change the brake fluid. I had never heard of such a thing as I had never just changed it, unless I was rebuilding the master cylinder, etc. But he said one should as it could get contaminated over time.

So of course after riding yesterday, it seemed as though my rear brake was pulsating lightly as if I had ABS and it got me to thinking about our conversation.

I've got new pads which probably have ~5,000 miles on them.

Any thoughts?
