hey all,

was crusing around today and then stopped back at my house to apply more sunscreen. As i got off the bike, i noticed a large flung-out mass of chewing gum on my chain guard and left side swingarm......


i carefully removed it....it came off easier than i thought, and that is likely because I regularly wax the swingarm and such whenever i wash the bike.


anyway, this made me wonder about you folks and what were some of the weird things that ur rear tire pulled off the road and it got stuck to ur bike?

Why would you need sunscreen on a motorcycle? The only exposed skin I have is a little bit on my neck between the collar of my jacket and the bottom of my helmet.

Anyhow, I get the usual road grime and such splashed up. I've had gravel/small debris embeded in my tread after some rides, and what looked like a magled paper clip. Other than that, not too much.
