    When should chain be cleaned/oiled?

    I never cleaned by chain particularly. Just sprayed the bike total with a low pressure water hose occasionally. And then applied some off-road oil to the chain. I have the scott-oiler and my chain lasted 25000km. So i never really oiled my chain except when done with getting the grub off.

    Went on a BMW GS ride with mixed brands allowed. :)

    I put 2.5 in the front and 2.9 in the back. I didn't want to hurt my rims going over the belgian cobbles. I don't race over these paths. Like some of the others did. I just take it easy. And shake my weight about to keep balance. :) That belly protector got a serious workout. Had to...

    K73 Heidenau on the back. Works well allround. But little to no grip in the mud. The TKC70 was better for that. A BW501 on the front. Once but not again. I'll try anything more offroad oriented after this on the front. the TKC80 lost it's blocks much too easy after a few thousand km's.

    It was hard. But i made it. I can brag and say i rode through that all alone but my rear tire didn't give me much grip. So i had an extra HP behind the NC She was saying: "Stick to the left of the puddle and it's ok. I'll push!"

I went 2 up through wales with camping gear and went up 20% narrow lanes with fences :) and hairpins. In D. Without any problems. It has sounded like lugging...
