I am new to Gold Wings and to the site but my Dad who is a long time Gold Wing rider told me to use Mobil One Racing 4T 10W-40.

Over on the trike site more folks use Blue Jug Rotella than any other brand.

Amsoil, always. Been using it in all my vehicles for 30 years. If you are not familiar with them, check
their web site.

That's a good recommendation. I've used a couple of different ones from Mobil 1 to a Case 0-40. I don't buy into the Amsoil mystique. It all lubricates. I'll likely use Rotella in the future.

I think it's great that lots of folks are into synthetic oil for their bikes regardless of brand.
Ride on. Keep the rubber side down.
