Finally, Riding Weather

A great day yeaterday for riding. Got the 700XX out, dusted it off and give it a workout. Truthfully, I got the workout. Hope these pictures come out. Temperature has been in the 80s.

M_Quick,
You do have a point. I have a philosophy and that is: When I return from a ride, the machine is cooled down, washed and the oil is checked, gasoline refilled, and a general inspection so it is ready for next ride. I went out for about 3 hours today in my RZR S and it took about the same amount of time to do all the items mentioned above. 85 degrees today. Whew!!
It is all part of the sport. IMHO

Sid,
I remember a time when I used to take special care of all of my toys. Nowadays, if I am just going to ride it once in a while, I will clean it off right afterwards. But if I know I will be on it for days in a row, I'll just clean enough of it to change filters, check oil and whatnot. I used to clean it with a tooth brush, and wax most everything I had after every ride. Now that I am starting to race again, my cousin and I talked a kid into "sponsoring us" and cleaning our four machines for us on Monday nights when he gets out of school, he has his own detailing business and does amazing work on vehicles, and he also makes some lousy vinils, but I told him to make two, 3x2 feet and I'd throw them on my enclosed trailer to get his name out there. Couldn't beat it. Last week we did a trial run, and he didn't do too bad. All I have to do is take off all the plastics before hand (I am funny when it comes to someone touching my stuff), and he takes care of the rest. Saves me time. So when Tuesday-Friday come around, I only have to worry about the maintenance.

But you sure do keep yours nice and pretty.

Chuck,
Thanks for the idea. A tooth brush. Hmmmmmm
Your idea of a youngster taking care of your detailing is neat, however, the travel expenses would kill me.
