PostSubject: Cleaning hazards   Thu Dec 17, 2009 1:32 pm

Cleaned the Silverwing today as I wont be using it over the festive period. (High risk of collision with reindeer)

Decided to ACF50 the metalwork to protect it. For those not aware, ACF50 is an anti corrosive treatment. Usual caveat, don't get on brake discs etc. I spray the light oil over the bike in general then whilst wiping the wheels with a cloth soaked in the stuff, I lacerate my fingers and hands trying to get to all those slightly inaccessible places. All those little fasteners on brake parts that you have to squeeze past to get to the wheels and such. It feels like loads of tiny cuts administered, wasn't noticed at first because it was so cold, but then I washed my hands - Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa - I found them then!!!

However, I now know that the Wing is covered up and protected.

Seasons greetings, watch out for low flying reinder towing portly gent on a mission.

My bike is in the garage after being liberally sprayed with ACF50 and will be staying there until the risk of ice has gone.

I daren't risk another injury to my shoulder or the problem could become permanent. I won't even walk to the shop if it's very icy.

Vinegar is good for finding out where your cuts are as well.

Chilli's are better or should that be worse.

Thank you for your kind advice on locating cuts.

BUT I KNOW WHERE THAY ARE NOW - thank you!!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I am only laying the Wing up for the next eight days. Just time for the big fella in the red suit to park up his reindeer!!!! After that it's two wheels again - weather dependent!!!!

Stay safe in this current bad weather.
