After 2 hours with parraffin & kettenmax, paraffin and rag, gel cleaner & brush, soap & water, hosepipe and finally a good few squirts of wd-40 & chain oil I now have a beautifully clean bike - even the chain is shiny.
Wish I could say the same about my clothes and skin, which are now covered in oil.
Could the weather please stay warm and dry for a while now so it doesn’t get covered in manky road grime & salt again.
Your bike is always spotless!
That’s because I wash it
I park it at work, on a building site, so it tends to need regular washing to keep the grime at bay.
Today was a proper going over, based on the hope that we won’t be getting any more gritters spreading salt all over the roads.
That’s because I wash it that made me chuckle
Isn’t that the traditional method, to transfer all the grit, grime, oil and effluent off the bike and onto the owner?
Works for me.
