I've heard both good and bad about using full synthetic and the synthetic blends. Personally I've been using the oil my shop sells, and whether or not I can do better than that, I don't know. My bike runs very well with the oil I get from my Vic shop and as far as I know, it's a synthetic blend.
One vote against full synthetic, I have been told, is that it can cause the clutch to slip in some bikes. There's boatloads of information about oils online but Kevinx would be a great resource to answer this one.
