Would something like 104+ be ok to use?

One of my favorite places in Oregon is heading out to the Alvord Desert. It's way out in the middle of no where, with one gas station that only sells regular fuel. With the Vstrom it was never an issue, but now I'm wondering how to handle this.
I just ran several tank fulls of Pemex Magna through mine with no issues. I never touched the plug. I'm sure the Pemex is lower octane than what you're getting in Oregon.
