Can you use Dex-Cool in a bike?

Time to change the coolant and I was wondering if using a special coolant like Dex-Cool would have any benefit?

In general, any quality coolant will be fine as long as it is designed for use with an aluminum block.

Rarely is the question stupid, but sometimes the answer is you need to run everything you read online through your own personal BS meter to determine if it makes sense to you.
