Default Motor Oil For High Heat

What is everyone running for high heat temps?

Been hitting the triple digits here in TX and it made me wonder what everyone is running for motor oil?

Mobil 1 V-Twin 20-50 (my choice)
Amsoil
Royal Purple

Lots of conversations about this on here, I use it because synthetic holds up better in extreme heat and Mobil 1 has Zinc in it to act as a backup lubricant. Not sure about the others but I know they all get good marks.

Yep another Mobil 1 user from South Florida and it has survived traffic jams going down to the Keys and Daytona main street congestion.

I'm in WV but the temps stay anywhere from 90-100 and it is also super humid. I run Amsoil 10W-40 and the bike runs just fine. Seems to like it. Any hotter and I'd for sure run 20W-50.
