unbelievable quality work, looks like it has more than 50 hours left in it NOW, what would you ever do with such a nice rig, do you even own a polishing cloth or wax?

Imagine how many could fit in the barn!

Nice patina on some of these. Some need work, some ready to run as is

It is seasonal. generally I deserve it.

A smarter sqwrl would hibernate.

And for what it is worth, I do have a tin of wax, Johnson and Johnson product in a tin can with a tin lid. ( actually a high percentage of carnuba wax in it )

Wax, paint and decals never really helped me get any work done, so unless there is road salt to keep off the equipment, the wax sits on the shelf waiting for the day I have absolutely nothing productive to do and the motorcycle is broke and the grass does not need to be watched....
