Madchild you need to get some chain wax or stop spraying lube on the outside of the chain. I would be afraid to lean the bike over with that lube everywhere. :cheers

Chain wax won't fly off all over the place like regular lube will. Wash your bike, clean your chain take the bike for a 10-15 min ride to get the chain warm, spray the inside of the chain, let sit another 10-15 so it sets and bang, no more lube all over wheel, tire, rear fairing.

BTW some might say it doesn't protect as well thats B.S. My chain and sprockets have 4,000 miles and still look BRAND NEW.

I love this trend...everyones right side is pretty good, and the left is pretty shitty. I guess most of us are right handed

another things I found thats very interesting when Chicken strips comes up is that you automatcially think of your rear tire. Like I never consider the front tires when someone ask up my chicken strips, never thought of taking pics of it either. I'll get some pics posted after Thanksgiving

Don't have a digital camera but on the rear the strips are about as wide as my finger. And the front still a 60 series has been almost completely over on both sides, maybe a couple mm's short

mine were about a half inch wide for quite a while till i let my friend take it out while i was out of town some time ago. when i got back and looked at the tires they were shredded! all the way to the edge. well not to be out done on my own bike, i've since learned to push myself and my bike to where i am just about all the way over consistently.

good times, good times.
