    Have a look at the links in my signature.
    The first one leads to a wonderful rabbit-hole.

    Hi there! You'll definitely learn a lot here, I love this place and everyone here, makes maintenance and repairs so much easier and even enjoyable at times :p I have to give these guys a lot of credit for helping me keep my bike on the road and running tops. I've put 18,000 miles on my bike since I joined this forum. And I've loved every mile lol. Hopefully they'll be many more to come.

    Here's my baby, 1980 xj650 Maxim

    It didn't when I got home! I was covered in mud up to my knees lol. Luckily that gear cleans off super easy, just wait for it to dry and brush the dirt and bugs off. The only thing that sucks is getting small bugs caught in the mesh. Those are hard to get out!

    You'll get it ;)

    I like your username! I love the color of your bike, too, it's looks pretty darn good in your profile pic! And I've washed my bike in the rain before, just makes rinsing easier haha :p
