After initial breakin, which oil is recommended?

Howdy,
On mile 417 of my 600 for my initial break-in...
What oil do you all recommend for a 2012 DL1000 (Vee)?
Synthetic? Blend?
Looking to tap the brain trust here.
Thank you all,
Dave

There's a "Big oil thread" on this site / forum. All oil-related discussions - and there are lots of them - are there. You can read about oil there for hours if you choose to. If you wish you can probably get there by just typing "big oil thread" in the Google box above.

2007 Wee. Blue. Bought at 5K miles. Sold at 32K+ miles. Gone but not forgotten.

2012 Wee2 Adventure. Black. Bought at 26K miles. Now 46K+. Love it!

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
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general...nicknames.html
