Couldn't ignore the sun after work, had to go for a ride!

One of the gates along Ferguson Rd was left open, I couldn't not go up.

on the ride home from the spring meet, i noticed a very very obvious "judder" in my front end under braking. not through the lever but through the handle bars. speed dependant of course. felt like a car if it has uneven wear on the rotors or calipers. im sure you guys know what im talking about. double checked the rotor bolt torque and all other front wheel torques and everything is fine. argh.

also, big thanks to ?NR and the rest of revscene for this awesome present for passing as well. i was quite surprised, and it really took me back. thanks guys

i'm switching to Motul chain paste from the regular Motul chain spray lube.

to clean, I've used kerosene, various commercial chain cleaners, heck, even used WD40.

I just put it on a rear stand, spin the wheel by hand and, use a rag to thoroughly clean the chain. Make sure to do it slowly so you don't pinch a finger. Easier to clean if you do it more often.

Tried a few lubes, current on Maxima chain wax. Found it collects dirt less quickly than others.

ChemChina is acquiring Pirelli for $7.7 billion ...

ChemChina to Acquire Pirelli for $7.7 Billion Motorcycle.com News

The 143-year old Italian firm is poised to become a part of the Chinese state-owned Chinese National Chemical Corp (ChemChina)....

This move will have zero impact I'm sure on the quality of the product but it's curious none-the-less.

PS ~ I have Pirelli tires.
