This weeks installment provides a reminder for why it is a good idea to give your bike a good cleaning periodically. Aside from the obvious, when you give your bike a thorough cleaning you have to be close to all areas of the machine and are likely to notice any leaks or damage that may be there that you were unaware of. This could be the difference between an unplanned stop (or worse) and an enjoyable ride. Take the time at least a couple of times a season to give your bike a thorough cleaning. Enjoy the ride.
