Default Rottela and Delo oil for motorcycles.

I am preparing to change the oil on my Goldwing motorcycle. In the Goldwing forums Delo and Rotella are favored as the engine and transmission share the same oil. I'm going for it! Any responces or recomendations?

Rotella 15-40 is used by "Wing World" magazines tech guru in his personal bikes. He mentioned the extra zinc and additives package that keeps turbodiesels happy was very good for the Wings [and most motorcycles} that share oil between the engine and transmission.
I'm just not sure . I always ran Honda brand oil or Golden Spectro motorcycle oil in my Wing.And my old Harleys just spat out anything but Valvoline Racing 50wt or Harleys 50 and grade 60 oils . Especially in hot weather. [Still got the stains on my shop floor from those days]
Your bike,your call......
