I agree, also. I remember a time when motorcycle motor was considered done at 20k miles.

If you buy a brand because your ego needs it…..suffice to say you can't buy what you need.

Hadn't thought of that. I noticed it right after the bike was serviced with synthetic oil for the first time. I find synthetic tends to weep a wee bit from the valve cover gaskets.
