Was this from a road trip? Commuting?
This oil was in the bike for 1 full year.
very few trips, some sunday rides. mostly just messing around town.
Also not this was when I lived in El Paso, with the exception of my ride from El Paso to Virginia, where I live now. about 2100 miles the rest of the miles are within 300 miles of El Paso.

That looks great.
I thought those engines asked for 20w50.
The owners manual states that, 20w50 is recommended, but there is a graph that calls for Xw40(special Oil) can also be used.
I'm gathering that special equates to synthetic, since the w40 has higher temperature protection than a conventional 20w50.
