shell rotella t5?

I know rotella t6 is very popular to bikers but I couldn't find too many opinions on rotella t5 (syn. blend). If you have used rotella T5 before please let me know how you like it. I'm not trying to open another oil debate. If you are anti-rotella no need to reply.

2011 wee (63k miles)
2002 vstar 650 (36k miles, sold)

used rotella for years in all my bikes, 125,000kms on st1100 (rotella) 200,000 kms on vfrs(rotella). stopped using it now because formula has changed lower zzdp because new diesel trucks have catalytic converters. to bad it was my favorite oil.

All oil discussions are limited to

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at
