All I can say is if standard oil can not handle the engine temps produced in a Goldwing motor under semi normal conditions, why do SO many riders have SO many hundreds of thousands of trouble free miles, and momma Honda says it is just fine?
BUT, if you want to run it that is just dandy. Call it peace of mind or whatever. I have on occasion but for the value, can't say I will.
Your results, and opinion, may vary.
