It's entirely up to you which oil you use and there is no problem mixing synthetic with organic.

I've only used it for the past 15 years in ever bike I have ever owned(many) that ran perfect. Oh and in my trucks too.
The only problems I can recall with full-synthetic oils were clutch problems so running it in an engine with a dry clutch isn't going to cause any problem at all.

Any synthetic Morocycle grade oil should work well with a wet clutch. actually, one of the more popular oils to use here in the states is Shell Rotella Syntheti Diesel oil, as it doesn't have the additives that can cause cycle clutch slippage, that are foundin most 'car oils'.

I've used Castrol ActEvo (Semi synth) in my previous bike and the CBR, never a complaint, holds up very well, especially in the, previous, air cooled bike, here in Florida's heat.
Air-cooled?
What bike was it?
