New Shell Rotella T6 Synthetic - now JASO MA!

Ok, some great news. I'm already a believer in Shell Rotella Synthetic oil, but they just came out with an improved formula, that even carries the JASO-MA rating! It's called Rotella "T6".

Lower ash, more sheer stable, etc. All what you want in a motorcycle. Look at the 2nd pic below, you can see the "JASO MA" rating.

I already was a believer in the previous product, and now that they've slapped the MA rating on it, I just found my new oil...

Awesome, I use Rotella T all the time in my bikes. $19.00 for a gallon of synth. at Walmart is a deal. I wonder when they'll carry this?

Local Wally Mart doesn't have it yet. They didn't have the old Rotella synthetic either so maybe they've blown out their old stock and the good stuff is coming soon?
