Default Just any oil ??

I have read enough oil threads to make me want to never read one again as I am sure many have. So I will post this question and hopefully real true answers will come out. I'm only starting this cause it was brought up to me from a fellow rider plus I'm home sick with the damn flu and got board so here goes.

Question: If your choice of oil was paid for you and shipped right to your door with your choice of filter for the life of your Victory bike, which oil and filter would you take advantage of using ? You may say why if you like.

No bashing please. Just trying to have some fun.
Look forward to the replies.

Victory branded oil and filter. Why? Because that's what Dr. Lloyd has most experience with, and has seen the least amount of problems with.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

I'd probably be +5 on this one, although I have never liked the look, smell, or feel of Vic oil coming out of the bike. Never sent it in for a UOA either.
Some of the "guru's" say they believe in it so FWIW. I do question some of their comments from time to time, but since I've never been in to a Vic engine much less a bunch of them I'll take their word.

As for my money, well we'll leave it there.

ANY name brand oil that's wet clutch compatible because at this point if they aren't good they aren't in business.

When was the last time you read about bad oil.
I have only been here for a short time but have not read of a motor failing cause of oil.
I don't understand all the oil threads. After all we all drive different cars different lawn mores drink different beers. But we should all use the same oil why. Oil does not pro-long the life of the motor its up to us to do that. You rev the motor before its full warmed up your damaging the cylinders or hard take offs before its warmed up or barring the rpm's pass the red line when standing still.
My Dad had a 53 Chrysler with 187 thousand miles on it and he used re refined oil he bought 5 gallons at a time and changed it every 3 thousand miles. I drove it to California and traded for a 250cc Honda.
For those of you that don't know re refined oil is used oil that has been cleaned and new additives have been added.
The point is what ever you use stick with it don't switch around and when the weather gets above 100 degrees and you do stop and go traffic change it more often.

Again any name brand oil.

I understand all the oil threads because there's a Oil and Lube section so we have to post in it or the people that own the site will feel bad.
