Steering Head/Neck Bearing Grease

Replacing Steering Head/Neck bearings and races and see the HD manual calls out a Special Purpose Grease (PN HD-99857-97). Will probably just use standard automotive wheel bearing grease but thought I check for other recommendations.

I just use a GP non lithium based grease. They obviously don't come with much more than assembly lube from the factory as my 500 mile service ate a tube of it.
