This is a good read, thanks a lot for posting.

Did learn quite a lot about oils, but article needed two-pass reading though. It doesn't discuss much about the existing terminologies though.

Didn't read the whole article but it looked to be mostly discussing 30wt oils... Most 30wt (Automotive based)oils are labeled as "energy conserving", meaning that they are impregnated with Series IV friction modifiers. You absolutely want to avoid these oils for a motorcycle. In addition a 5w 40 synthetic will absolutely outperform a 5w 30 synthetic...
