Antifreeze - Yamaha Venture

I purchased my first bike that requires Antifreeze and I'd like to get some input.
I've seen some people say only use motorcycle antifreeze and other say it doesn't matter what you use.
It seems most of the auto antifreeze has corrosion inhibitors which I've heard is bad but like I've said I've heard a lot of different opinions on the subject.

I've always received great advice here so I'm asking again.
Thank you in advance!!

Garage did an article on coolant change. The article recommended a low silicate green coolant with a 50/50 mix, however if you use straight coolant, it recommend a 50/50 mix using distilled water and not tap water. My old Honda VT700 was water cooled and Honda recommended the same coolant mix.
