It would be nice to see some lower copper from your Honda. This sample shows an increase in brass/bronze wear, even as several of the other metals improved. It's hard to say exactly what made Copper to read a bit higher here. Maybe a bushing or some other valvetrain component.

If this oil sees use in the transmission, it could be from that too. Since the other metals look good let's see how Copper compares after another 5000 mile run. The TBN is fine at 5.1, just check back on the Copper. Silicon is lower this time so the air filtration system is working well.
