Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

I'm guessing that deal is also on in the UK, 12 quid for 4 litres :

I've done 3.5K miles and I've just checked the consistency of the oil in my bike definitely needs as it's more like a watery substance, not particularly sure where honda gets 8k mile oil changes from though looking at my oil.

I know what you mean with regards to the consistency after a few thousands miles. Closing on 4k the gear shifting gets noticeably notchy although general running is rather smooth and no clutch slip. With fresh oil and new filter the shifting is smooth again. I certainly wouldn't leave it to 8k to do a change, even with Honda spec bike oil.

I went to Halfords yesterday and bought three tubs of synthetic 5/30 for £12 each.That is the next two oil changes on my car sorted out.I used car oil in my bikes for many years with no problems but dont tend to do it nowadays,dunno why,I just dont.
Someone on the TriumphTorque forum posted a link to Hein Gericke in Germany,they are selling 10/40 semi synthetic bike oil for £10.70 a tub,althought postage is 10 Euro,about 7 quid.I ordered two tubs and two oil filters for just short or £40.

Its up to your self skyrider if u can get good deal on bike oil keep using it, i always used motorcycle oil in my bikes for long time. U have to remember the cb engine must been designed in 91or 92 but i am sure it based on or a simular honda engine from before that. I think its more about regular oil changes. When i saw guy on delboys garage using castrol 10w/40 semi car oil in his suzuki bandit 1200,  i decide going use car oil.

I will see how I feel when the time comes for an oil change, the previous owner changed oil and filters just before I bought the bike so it will be a while yet

If you go to Halfords don't pick up the 5L cans as they work out a lot more expensive than the 4L cans for some reason? They are right next to each other on the shelf!
