Really rare sighting

"Big Blue" getting a bath. Probably common for most you guys, but trust me, this is some true pampering for "Big Blue". He doesn't get this kind of treatment very often lol

Look at the bright side: Unlike Harleys, we don't have any chrome on our bikes.

Time spent looking at motorcycles, even Harleys, is never wasted.

Why not? First modification I made back in 2008 was bling. Still there and [email protected] proud of it!

If I had one of the slow blue ones I wouldn’t wash it very often either

Good work!

No, I don’t have any chrome exhaust pipes on my stock FJR. Awfully shiny. Must not be chrome.
