The local oil distributor stopped by the shop one day almost 40 yrs ago now. Had a show n' tell on Mobil I synthetic showing bearings from two of their Indy car sponsored engines. One ran with their premium racing oil the other with Mobil I synthetic. Bearing shells from the dino oil engine were worn to the copper and scored. The synthetic oiled engine bearings looked like new, they also had new shells for comparison. I've been using Mobil I products in everything I own ever since. My bikes get changed every 5K, eng, pri & trans - no failure of any kind. Good oil, regularly changed, is a cheap overhaul
