Default Right about the weight

You are right about the extra weight. Maybe I'll have one of my personal slaves take care of the chain maintenance for me.

This product yoostabe a big fave on the Stromtrooper site, but has since fallen into disfavor. Why? Because extended use as a chain loob is revealing that the stuff turns into a hard crust that eats sprockets alive.

You penny-pinching, store-brand-buying, washable foam airfilter usin clowns are always saving $.10 today and spending $1.00 tomorrow.

Use the right size tires. Buy motorcycle-specific oil. Install OEM parts whenever the drive train is serviced. And stop screwing the damn sheep; we've got plenty of girls around for that.

But what will I do with all these Muckboots and Velcro Gloves?

I wonder if that's what was on the last Bandit I bought? the stuff had set like concrete on there. I wound up just replacing the chain and sprockets, I think it would have taken an angle grinder to get that stuff off.

I haven't noticed any buildup at all, and I've got thousands of miles on two chains now.

Also, if it's applied properly, it cleans as it goes on.

I usually re-apply every 400-ish miles.

What was the original thread again?

It was an oil or tire thread. Or GUNS! Yeah - it was a Gun Thread!

So, how 'bout that .45 1911 Colt, eh? I think it's a good weapon, but these fancy "Automagicks" or whatever are just a gimmick. It'll never take off like my Colt Navy........

I stick to them wheelie guns myself, no need for some fancy-pants Frenchy autoloader.... if you can't hit 'em with 5 or 6 shots then you best just throw a durn rock at 'em and skedaddle.

Yeah. And it's hard to get good catreedges these days. So I'm sticking with ol' brown Bess. I can pick up flints off the ground most anywhere.

I've been packing the AA-12 these days. Seems like it's never just one or two a-holes giving me gas pains. This one doesn't kick much, which I like, and it never needs oil or cleaning because it's stainless.
