I've read many good reports and never once a bad report from using T6 in a Goldwing.

In fact, I'm using it in Mine.... :)

Actually, the correct oil is listed in your Owner's Manual. The best oil continues to be Honda's GN4 conventional oil. It has a very narrow additive package intended just for Honda's powersport products.
