Here's the Blackstone analysis from the end-of-season oil change (11/15/14). I put more miles on this OCI than the last analysis, the wear metals are trending downward, and it stayed in grade better. I think the Vic oil is doing OK. . . .
@LoneRanger. . . no, never owned a Triumph, but I have friends and relatives who have them and they seem to like them--I wouldn't refuse one as a gift! So far I've owned Honda, Harley, BMW, Kawasaki and currently my Victory. I've enjoyed all of them, some more than others. At this stage of my life, I've come to appreciate touring comfort and simplicity above all else.
Victory oil. 7000 miles in a shared sump bike.
That all by itself impresses me,since all the syn oils I've used in my shared sump bikes had sheared enough to negatively affect shifting by 3500 miles.
So 7000 miles is impressive.
Looks like the Vic oil is a winner.
Thanks for posting.
