Well lets just get this out of the way :)

Synth lasts longer but the cost is higher

Your thoughts.............................

Suzuki recommends their oil. I naturally do what the dealer suggests as they know what is right for my motorcycle.
Is he gone yet?

Synth in the VFR. Dino in the Airhead.

I still have a half a quart of your Suzuki oil floating around the garage somewhere.

Lotsa water around your place?
(you know, oil floats on top of water...you said you had oil floating around the garage.  Laugh, dammit)

I only use first cold press extra virgin baby oil.
If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.

What a waste of good oil....I wait until it is all fried out and then run it through a coffee filter before feeding it to the XR.

Could I substitute cold pressed less than virgin baby seal oil?

I use full synth in my Harley, nitro in my tires (including the car tire on the rear), wear nothing but CE-certified leather, and I carry BBs to throw at cagers.  Did I miss anything?  ;D

I never could decide, so I use both.  I add some of each at every oil change.
