Let 'er rip gents and babes.  This new site needs some angst!!!!        
The time has come to travel while the oatmeal-eaters tarry at their fort. To this end, I have chosen a train of stout dogs to pull a toboggan of trade goods. We are eager to proceed and the dogs are baying at their tethers.

I think all of us that use Shell Rotella Synth was all based on one web link that makes it sound like its the best.  If anyone can prove there oil works better then any other oil I will buy you a beer and then go buy that oil.  Here is the site I refer to.  http://calsci.com/motorcycleinfo/Oils1.html  ----------------------------------  I will answer any question.  It is up to you to figure out if I should have.    <p align="left">My Photos<br

Hogboy you won't get to many people arguing against oil.. ;) We all need to use it.    As been said in many, many, many threads: Modern oil is ALL GOOD for it's intended purpose   As long as it is not the newer energy saving stuff it's good for Connie.  The cheep to the expensive..all.. GOOD    Just change it... :p evey 2,000 to 8,000 miles    But go ahead and start a flaming thread,,, ;p    I use Mobil 1, 15~50 synthic....  Change it every 3~4,000 miles with filter.    Yuma,  Summer in Yuma is not hell, but hell is a local call :-)  2006 Connie http://community.webshots.com/user/Lateck?vhost=community

Some oil is good.    No oil is bad.    Regularly changed oil is better.      Obama is a hack.  How's that for angst, Hogboy?

Castrol 10/40 MC oil for me every 4K or so.  I only use it as it gives me an excuse to go to the local Cycle Gear store every now and then!    They usually have a $5 coupon in their flier so the price is right and that little Wee Strom motor takes less than 3 quarts to boot!  Roger  COG 5903  Virginia Beach, VA
