try to find the manufacturers API specifications on the engine oil type and weight. For example on my sportbike it is SM/CF 15W-50 for the watercooled 955cc triple. Then you can feel free to pick your brand. I use Mobil 1 full synthetic since day one when I took her home. However this is a very objective subject pro cons a million. Full synthetic to me is far superior to fossil oil, cuz, it doesnt burn up by over heating, therefore it lubricates better and it tends to last longer. Couple that with a good brand filter and Bob's your Uncle.
As far as the big aircooled V-twin thats another beast and it has it's own priorities so find the API specs and go with knowledge.
