Oil threads are part of motorcycle and car forums. Rotella is good oil. But so are about a million others. Any car or diesel oil is fine, just don't go below 10w40, that's when you get into that "energy conserving" epa crap. I use Castrol GTX 20w50, and I have 85,000 miles on the bike. I live in AZ where it is super hot. If you live in a cooler climate, 10w40 or 15w40 is fine.
I don't use synthetic, or any motorcycle specific oil. It's ok, but insanely expensive. I like clean oil in my engine, I change it at least every 3000 miles, sometimes sooner. Hard to do that if the oil costs $50.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
