Default High Mileage vs Oil and Filter

OK, so I'm up against another oil/filter change (happens often when the interval is 2500 miles, right?) and that got me to thinking about the oil and filter to buy. I know there are plenty of threads asking about which oil or filter is best, what does/doesn't work, which one transfers the heat best, etc. What I want to know is not a million opinions about which is the best oil. I want to hear from the high-mileage riders what they are using and how many trouble-free miles they've put on.

Here's the particulars for responses:

1. I'm looking for riders with more than 50,000 miles.
2. I want to know what oil/filter you've used.
3. I want to know if you've had any engine/transmission issues.

I'm not looking for guesses, opinions, or third party reports. I want to hear from the riders that have done it. Enlighten me.

Hi,
Which weight Mobil 1? - 61K with no issues sounds like a great recommendation to change to Mobil 1...

Victory Vegas 8 Ball 2009 (5 speed 100ci)

Stage 1 with Swept black exhaust / Ness bars / Lowered
