Check around your area. If I had one, there's a Whole Foods a couple of blocks away, and I've never seen anyone using the two free chargers.

It was the best Monster ever - until the new 1200S came out; now it's not much better than my 1978 Honda CB400 and your granny wouldn't be caught on one. That's the way it goes in the Ducati world. ;)

If it's what I'm thinking of, it's typically used as a penetrating oil to free up to pieces rusted together, like an engine with the pistons rusted to the cylinder walls.
