Default I'm old and creaky, so is my bike!

I'm old and creaky, so is my bike. When I get up in the morning it takes me a few minutes to wake up and get going. I'm moaning and groaning and joints CREAK!!

Now my 2012 XCT does the same thing... Where are good places to throw a little grease on Ol' Vic?

And does your bike make sounds when you get on it after it has sat awhile?

Arkie , if a Vic isn't making noises , It isn't running .... Also , you don't look old enough to be creaking already .
Eat a nice pulled pork , you will feel much better !

When ever she has one over me (she's winning whatever we are "debating"), I just remind her that she's a cradle snatcher
