Regarding chain maintenance, especially cleaning, I've been pretty lax. Considering I do about 50% of my riding on gravel roads and it gets filthy, I need to address this.

What does everyone do?

I've heard some people scrub chains down in a pan of kerosene and then re-lube but I was concerned about trapped kerosene actually doing more harm than good as a solvent.

Just brush it off and spray it with a good chain lube and call it good? It's been 1000 miles and I'm feeling guilty.
I drive a BMW, but I ride a Triumph.
