Yes, Synthetic oil has proven advantages but replacement intervals aren't one of them. The main reason we change oil is to remove contaminants like metal particles and by-products of combustion, not just because the oil is "bad" or "broken down".
Yes, low octane fuel is more unstable and "runs hot". H-D engines have fairly high compression ratios and stable fuel is necessary to prevent pre-ignition and/or detonation, which can harm the engine.
High octane racing fuel (100+ octane) is rarely ever required in street-legal engines. That stability is usually never necessary and many racing fuels contain lead which can be harmful to engine sensors like oxygen sensors.
You should change the oil before storage to remove debris and harmful contaminants that accumulate during normal operation such as metal particles and chemicals resulting from the combustion process.
