to clean or not??

it's been a while since i've really cleaned my bike - not that you really care... although i do like a clean bike, i wouldn't say i'm fanatical about keeping it clean. i may have mentioned this before, but if i had to choose between cleaning my bike and missing a ride or riding a dirty bike, i'll take the ride any day...

i'd like to clean my bike... mostly for two reasons - one, it hasn't been cleaned in a while. two, i want to strip it down - right now it's loaded up with the tour-pak and passenger seat. i want to take those off and ride it as a solo rider this weekend. which i another reason not to worry about washing the bike right now - the ride to the smoke out this weekend. i'll most likely end up cleaning it next week/weekend anyway.

maybe i'll just give it a quick once over, removing the bugs and other splatter. i won't worry about a deep cleaning until after the ride this weekend. or until the next ride comes along and i decide not to clean it...

speaking of cleaning... i think my inspection is due this month. i better check that out...

peace...
