Default Rotella T6 5W-40: OK for warm temperatures?

Looking for an economical oil appropriate for my 2004 Honda 599. I heard Rotella T4 and T6 were OK, but I couldn't find T6 in any weights other than 5W-40. Is that OK for riding in summer temps in the southeast?

What type of oil does the manual say to use? I don't remember. Probably cause I sold my bike.

I use Rotella T6 5W-40 here in Northern California. It gets above 100 degrees quite a bit in the summer. I've ridden it in 110 degrees without problems using that oil.
