And you know.. their oil is probably a great product but their marketing guys might want to look at how they're portraying themselves on the web. Getting the name out is one thing, but it's how you go about it that lends to credibility.. Of course, really great products almost don't need advertising once they're established except for revenue maintenance.

Currently running Castrol Syntec because it can be found at any WalMart or auto store.. Any good 20/50 would do in a pinch..

This is true in a pinch, however motorcycle oils are blended for air cooled engined and have additives that car oils don't. Take a look in the DIY forum under oils for some further info.

Yea; I have read all that many times over and am not convinced. I think everyone should use what they are comfortable with. I would rather have a synthetic, but would not hesitate to go cross country on any modern automobile oil. YMMV

Not trying to convince anybody, just presenting facts as they were presented to me. Your bike, Your choice, that's what makes america so great!

Going to change my oil next week and going to the Royal Purple 20W50 weight. Not thier cycle oil just the 20W50 regular. Hope this shouldn"t cause any problems. Change every2500 to 3000 miles. Should be better than syn3 I would think. Run Harley dino oil so am interested if this will help bike run cooler.
