I apologize in advance, i didn't get a chance to take a pic so i'll try to post later when i can.
I was doing a walk-around on the bike last night and checking for leaks, fluids and so on and i noticed my chain was showing signs of what looks like rust, i tried to scrape it off and it comes off but i'm still a little worried that i might need to get it replaced soon.
As far as the chain being lubed, i usually do it every 500k - especially after long road trips (ie. van-loops), the pins all seem intact, nothing is loose and all the teeth are in great condition.
Just wanted to get someone else's opinion - again, i'll post pix when i can.
