interesting thread - never ending discussion

Since my Sunday paper has yet to arrived yet and I am coming up on my 6k oil change and knowing conventional LT wisdom dictates not changing to Full Synthetic until the 12K mark I started researching *Which
syn to switch to when the time comes.

I will probably go with either Mobil 1, Rotella 5-40 (by Shell/Walmart dist) Amsoil, or Royal Purple. My thinking is any Syn wil be fine and cost,
ease of accessing is plus!

Here is an unbiased party who has no connections to any company. *Interested reading for those inclined:

47+ Yrs Daily Motorcycle Street riding for Therapy

2012 Victory Cross Country Tour
2007 Black Suzuki DL1000 V-Strom - Sold
2007 Red Moto Guzzi Norge 1200 - Sold
2005 LT Dark Graphite - (Sold)
2005 PearlBlue FJR1300 (Sold)
3 BMW's, 8 HD baggers, 3 Goldwings & 860K + miles later
*Ridin steady since 1973

Lot of info

Thats a lot of oil info Top.
It cleared the air on a few things I was unsure about.
(For truck maint, not bikes, but they all cost money. If you blow up the truck you don't have that money for the bikes)
