I use it for several different reasons. I’ve bought into the purposes of synth!

I’m sure not everyone agrees with this but I have no reason not to. I understood that it can, in the long run, save ME money. Read this link.

http://auto.howstuffworks.com/synthe...-motor-oil.htm

“Synthetics can last as much as three times longer than conventional oil, which means that you could be dumping less than 15 to 24 quarts of oil per year.”
“Depending on where you drive (dusty, dirty climates), and how much and far you drive (shorter distances don't heat oil enough to boil off condensation in the engine), you can probably last between oil changes for 10,000, 15,000, on up to 20,000 miles with some brands of synthetic.”


1.Longevity – I do not like to change oil often or feel it necessary with synth technology but common sense tells me not to try to make it to 10,000 miles before changing.

“Synthetics have also been shown to produce less resistance in the engine and therefore offer more horsepower and overall efficiency for the engine. This added horsepower in return means that the engine will be able to perform at the same level as before, but using slightly less gas.”

2.Performance and better gas mileage – it would be crazy not to care about these things if you ride a lot.

There may be lots of people who can’t tell a difference in the oil in their bikes or even care. If you have the big bucks, you can simply drop it off for servicing and when you feel you've had your bike long enough, get a different one. There is nothing wrong with this and more power to you! Not a big deal, right?

This oil thread is for pointing out that… there is an option that can help us financially and help our machines. You either care or don’t give a rip! You CAN tell who the people are in the world that CARES.

The way they dress. The way they care for their belongings. The way they treat others. If their grass hasn’t been cut in a while. LOL!

Does it take a lot of effort and energy to create synth? Probably! Same with electricity.

I do not worry about running out of fossil fuel, global warming, no more toilet paper, no more diapers, batteries for cell phones and so on. I am concerned about not having coffee or a beer every now and then. What would there be to live for?

I digress!

We all know the right things to do in life... and then we choose and live with our choices, huh? Why didn't I start a company years ago selling bottled water... what the heck was I thinking?

Finally! Treat your bikes well and it will give you lots of pleasure and may even save your life. That can either be taken literally or tongue and cheek. This is what I tell myself anyway!

Recently though I've commandeered the metre or so wide strip of plastic mulched dirt that fronts the factory complex, between the carpark and the chainwire fence.
A patch about 30 feet long x 1 metre wide,
Ripped up the plastic and dug up the dirt, dug in a few bags if organic soil conditioner some lime and a few bags of mixed organic fertiliser. Planted kale, silverbeet, cabbage, tomatoes, carrots, cauluflower, already.
And last week dug more organic mattet into the last 20 feet Ive already pre-dug and today putting in sweetcorn, climbing beans, zuchinni, and more tomatoes.
Spring has sprung here and I plan on caring for my body, as in we are what we eat. Been on organic veggies almost a year now after attending too many cancer funerals.

LOL! Perfect! Talking about grass... the cutting kind in an oil and lube thread.

I don't care! I enjoy what you guys say regardless.

Tell you the truth, Motorbx is making me want to go down under.

You are so right! Our health both mental and physical keeps us able to ride.

I want to go to Australia and Alaska before I die. I met a guy from Alaska today and he was telling me about the days when the sun never goes down there.

I just came back from two weeks in Alaska. AMAZING place highly suggest everyone go visit. What's really cool is the sun rises in the North, circles the sky and sets in the North. Sunrise 5:35am sunset 11:13pm while we were there.

Oh! The guy from Alaska just moved to Baton Rouge, La. after his wife of 44 years wanted a divorce. She got the gold mine, he got the shaft, and after 5 yrs of retirement, he had to go back to work.

A real bummer! All he can do is talk bout Alaska now... doubt he'll be jumping up and down about being in the south.
