Just curious...specifically what additives are you saying Redline doesn't have and where can I find the information?

Based purely on cost you would be best off going with used oil from your neighbors Winnebago.

I draw the exact opposite conclusion for someone who only changes yearly. Changing all 3 fluids takes a grand total of about 5 quarts in a Softail. Redline products (or pick any good synthetic), which I trust to continue to protect my bike, even if it gets very hot, much more than any dyno oil are maybe an extra $4 a quart. $20 a year is cheap insurance. Anything over 2000 miles a year and you are at less than a penny a mile.

If the bike gets hot in June and you cook the dyno oil, you would be running less effective oil for the entire rest of the season.

I don't see synthetics as a way to extend change intervals (they get dirty just as fast)....I see them as more likely to protect the bike for the entire interval than dyno oils.

As long as you have him somehow convinced to run 93 octane in his motorhome....I see no problem with your plan.
