This is a prime example of when "back in the old days" was better.

I can sleep well tonight!

Thanks to you all, that is what I was thinking but it is good to have a forum like this to bounce things off of. Synthetic it is! I've always run dino but with the air cooled engine and everyday riding I believe the syn. will serve better. I'll still keep to a 3,000 oil change, just cheap insurance.

Yup. Very old commercial comes to mind. Line that always sticks in my head... "pay me now, or pay me later, but you will pay me" I don't remember the oil brand though.
