Every time I change my oil, I change the oil filter. Every time there are metal fragments in the filter. The thing that concerns me is that going a year at a time between oil changes, even at once a month, means twelve rides. There would be alot of debris in the oil filter. If the filter would get clogged, the oil would then use the bypass and avoid the filter completely. That would be NO GOOD for the bike and/or the wallet.
I have no problems with people using whatever oil they want but........it still has to be changed frequently.

IMHO, I think that 99% of us change the oil well before its properties have been depleted so I don't spend big bucks on "motorcyle oils."
This has been debated a lot, use whatever makes you feel good but change it often as keeping an eye on what's going on inside the engine (by means of the filtration system) is good practice.
