Where do you get your oil and filter?

Wanted to change my oil and filter in the near future, usually orders moto stuff online, but am thinking about getting it local this time, I can only think of Cycle Gear store for having a selection of oil and filter on the shelf, any other option in town?

If it was meant for it then it would state it on it. Use motorcycle specific out that you trust.

OIL IS CHEAP, a motor is not......

I don't understand it when people cheap out on oil n filter on a investment that's worth thousands.... Wish I could throw away money like that.

I suggest amsoil or motul
