Maybe I'm losing my mind but it sounded like that's exactly what you said...regardless, I have UOAs that show T6 holds up very well in a high-shear environment and will continue using it. I'm not the type to waste money on high-dollar oils for minimal performance improvement over something like T6. To each their own. How recent were the UOAs done? I'd love to make the switch to a budget full synthetic if it will hold up well. I just don't like the idea of constantly changing my oil. Each ride I do is probably 4 hours so if I could get two or three rides between changes on t6 that would be great.
