Shell Rotella

So I was talking with a friend of mine about motorcycle oils. I was contemplating what oil I would run for the summer since I bought Shell Rotella T6 (5W40) for my next change since we dip into the 30s at night now. My only option was running Shell Rotella T 15W40. But I didn't want to constantly switch between synthetic and dino.

I had to stop by NAPA today to pick up an il filter for our CTS, and what do I find on the shelf? Shell Rotella T5 (10-40) synthetic heavy duty, now I can stay synthetic at an affordable price...anyone use this yet?

Here's what I use. I think the 10W40 full synth. Is the way to go.

I bought it at O'Rileys. NAPA only had Royal Purple which was 17bucks a quart. No way was I paying that lol, even though I would love to run the Royal in my bike.

Haha I know! I hear Royal Purple is great, but not worth 17bucks a quart, for me at least. DUMBB. Lol
