Camera phone. Actually, the weather has been perfect. Santa Rosa Island. Smack dab between NAS Pensacola and Eglin AFB. On a quiet night, you can hear the sweet and tender sounds of things blowing up. But the sand's as white as sugar, and you can count your toes under the clear water while in chest-deep. There are few houses on this island, and about half of them were damaged or destroyed by two hurricanes in two years, but the rental I'm in is in good shape, and totally refurbished.

I see lots of bikes down here, no sport-tourers... just cruisers and sports. An FJR in this neighborhood would be as useful as an Indy car in a traffic jam.

At least there are bikinis.

Apologies if this is a dumb question, but are any of the oils you guys have mentioned in this thread Synthetic or all petroleum based? I am a big fan of Synthetic oils, and am planning on running this in my new FJR after the initial 1,500 miles (following the MotoMan break-in procedures).

I believe the Golden Spectro mentioned above is a semi-synthetic. Full synthetics I hear guys talking about most are Rotella Synthetic and Mobil1 Red Cap (20w50 - no friction modifiers).

Internationally; Motul, Silkolene, and Repsol all offer full-synthetics, if you like that flavor.

I have yet to try the BelRay full synthetic... I think I'm going to give it a go next time, because my old favorite Mobil1 MX4T is getting darn hard to find... and you can't buy it online (that I know of).
