He said you can always just add any regular oil not just synthetic. Only thing is, the life expectancy of the oil would then be like regular oil not the expected duration of synthetic oil between changes.
Makes sense to me, don't run low just because you can't find your brand on a trip.
Use what you can and fix it later at home.

if I were using amsoil and found my oil level to be low on a trip I would stop and get some mobil1 for bikes and continue on my way
