Default what type of 2 stroke oil?

I know these engines recomend a synthetic oil, I've only been able to find a semi synthetic for my first tank of gas. Is it really that important to use the synthetic? I've had plenty of dirt bikes and chainsaws run for years on regular quality oil. I'm in Mesa Az and just cant find a true synthetic oil. I havent been to the kawasaki dealer yet, I imagine they would have it but with the cost of my first gallon at nearly 12 bucks with the semi syn oil I sure would like a somewhat cheaper way to go. Really not that big a deal though figuring the mpg's just curious as to what other people are running. I sure have been getting a lot of looks out on the road and some comments at the lights! Very few people I guess have ever seen one of these bikes, good times! (minus the flat tire yesterday)
