Regular VS Fully synthetic

Hey guys so i've been hearing a bunch of different things about oil. Here in Tampa its pretty hot and i was wondering what oil is the best? Some people told me that if i run fully synthetic for a while and all sudden put regular oil in the bike i will loose power? Is that true? What i thought is that u could maybe loose barely any power if u put thicker oil in a motor right??

Hard to tell if you're serious.

"some people" are wrong.

Any 10W-40 blended for motorcycles. Synthetic is better than non.

Excellent value is 5W-40 Shell Rotella T synthetic - pretty cheap at Wal Mart.
