    Yep. The DOT rating is all you really need. Although some would suggest that sticking to a recognized brand name is a wise option.
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.

    Brake fluid for bikes goes way faster
    I’m not crazy, I just need to get off this island. The doctors don’t believe I invented the chocolate éclair. But I did. I’m going to burn them all and drink soup from their skulls! Happy soup! Untie me and I’ll kill you last!
