  1. Wewll Dave, I really didnt spray it on the chain. I merely soaked a shop towel in it and ran the chain through the towel several times. Since this was my 1st time with the Chain Saver I spent an inordinate amount of time running towels through the links, both sides, you name it so I could fairly judge how the Saver was doing without all the accumulated crap that was on it. So far, so good. We shall see!
  2. Thanks for posting this, Ed. Ive used PJ1, early on, then BelRay SuperClean for years. These days Ive been using DuPont Chain Saver w/Teflon. Along with Dupont Chain Cleaner. Both about $7 /11oz. can at Walmart.. Not enough miles on the Dupont lube to make a judgement, but for sure is less messy than the SuperClean. The Chain Cleaner is excellent, works well. The Dupont stuff was recommended in a poll on the Vstrom website, Stromtroopers.com, and it is the most widely used chain lube in the poll. I thought I'd give it a try.
  3. Thank you all for your replies!

  6. Many thanks to all who attended this evening's Stlar meeting, in addition to all the Stlar members. This was the last Stlar meeting for 2018 The Culpepper's location has been secured for 2019, and our next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, March 5th. On a personal note, I especially enjoyed the Stlar rides I've attended. I'm riding more now than ever, going to places I havent been to before, and getting the use out of my motorcycle I previously didnt make time for. The Stlar rides have contributed to all of that.

  7. Hello all! The next Stlar meeting is Tuesday, Nov.6 @ 6:30, Culpepper's St. Charles. I hope to see you there!
  8. Outstanding day!!! Good roads, route, food, weather...and great people to ride with! Thanks Ed!--I now have a new BBQ place when I'm out in that area.
  9. Actually, I'd like something a little more centrally located, a little further southeast of St. Charles. Scout-a-mania commences tomorrow.
  10. "It's supposed to make it look industrial-like." Mission Accomplished Lot of words to describe that wall, "Motif" isnt one of them that comes to mind. Is that unfinished fireplace part of that "Motif"? I'm still looking.
  11. Yep, that was an old lamp had nothing to do with Mazda's parent company, Toyo Kogyo. One of Mazda's(the car) models was called Luce'(pronounced "Luchei") was named for the Japanese Goddess of Light, but that is the only thing in common to both Mazda and Westinghouse. Ive seen a few Mazda lamps and advertisements in antique shops.
  12. In with new tires and a smile on my face.
  13. I DID vote, but presently I can ride the 13th, 14th, 27th, or 28th, so it matters not a whit to me...as long as I'm riding.
  14. Aaron, the main criteria for a meeting place is: 1) A private room 2) Easy access 3) Fairly central location for most 4) Safe/secure parking 5) Good food at a fair price and decent service Through the years we've had all 5 items in the 3 Culpepper's locations Stlar has frequented. As I said, I had no problem with St. Charles Culpepper's location at all. Infact, they did a wonderful rehearsal dinner for my son Eric's wedding after the Culpepper's Creve Coeur location closed...and gave Lisa and I one week to find another location. But when I bring up an obvious issue, and the manager tells me there isnt anything they can do, there is a problem, and not with Stlar. When I mention there is talk of finding another meeting place and am told.."You have to do what you have to do", the problem is magnified. I'm not looking for a Ruth Kreis Steakhouse, just a decent restaurant with management that actually cares and listens to its patrons. Also, through the years Ive noticed a general deterioration in our meeting room. The north wall is now all rusting metal, the fireplace has airgaps, isnt insulated and allows cold air in when the temps drop, and now this water leak. I'll be visiting Culpeppers St Charles to see if the room is better. I wont give up one place before I secure another.
