I've exclusively used the rotella t (dino) since the odometer read 1000 miles,,my vlx has over 60000 now, I just replaced my clutch/cable at 58,000 miles.

Proof is in the pudding for me.

+++ on the Rotella T6. However weird though, I noticed it quieted the valve-train a bit.

That's weird......LOL. The thing I like is I can do the oil on mine and my wife's bike at the same time with the same oil. She has a 01 ACE. Nice to be able to use just one jug.
