    One of these things is not like the others....

    I was preparing for a ride tomorrow, when I noticed something that made me realize that I won't be starting as early as anticipated tomorrow. Can you see it?Name:  first.jpg

    This is a good reason to clean and lube your chain. You will notice what could have become a catastrophic failure in another country. This chain has just over 27,000 on it, it has been lubed and adjusted regularly, but I ride it like it was meant to be. For those of you who shrug off proper maintenece of your bike I hope you don't have to deal with the aftermath of a broken chain.

    27k seems great for a chain IMO. How often are you cleaning/lubing it? I've been doing mine every 3rd or 4th tank of fuel and it hasn't needed adjustment yet after ~6k KMs. I'll be inspecting my chain more carefully now. Thanks for sharing.
