I've also had good luck with Redline 10w60.

I think BMW's M cars are the major users of these oils, if not the only users. So it'd probably be hard to find a cheap, crappy oil with the right weight.

A quick Google search that rolled over to Amazon says, yeah, you've either got automotive oils for our cars or motorcycle oils.

Well, for one, I dont' think anyone would be able to tell one oil after another after its been in the engine, and two, I don't think Liqui Moly is any worse than Castrol Edge as far as oil itself goes, to be honest.
So, its your call.
