Default Washing the bike- a determination

It has taken years of reflection and many gallons of cleaning supplies but I am finally able to say without reservation that the best album to wash your bike to is Physical Graffiti.

Red.

Cross Country Tour.


We can't help it
We just keep moving
It's been that way since long ago
Since the stone age chasing the great herds
We mostly go where we have to go

That was written by James McMurtry

I use Racer Glaze cause its anti static does not draw dust like wax and it doesn't scratch chrome like wax does.
Any spray on stuff spray your towel to apply it on, your spray will last longer

I gave each one 22 seconds... terrible, terrible, and terrible. It is funny how tastes vary, in film, music, food, etc.
