    "It is critical to maintain any polished metal or Chrome surface. Just look at the anodized aluminum or Chrome metal pieces on any car. If not cared for they look like trash pretty quickly. Another negative of polished metal or Chrome is once there are scratches or imperfections they're almost impossible to get rid of."

    'true 'dat but I think if you looked at the painted surfaces on the same car you'd find even more problems typically. Stuff ages and decays, but painted steal is a bit more vulnerable than polished metal, at least on the things I've owned. Then again a lot depends on the depth of the paint and the chrome, there is for sure a good, bad, & ugly on that.

    Thanks, mailed our registration in earlier this week, hope to see you, too!

    p.s. Look for a V9 with plasti-dip black fenders and a silver V7 tank with some sanding/primer spots.

    So my Griso is chopped liver, Chris? :fpalm

    Seriously, what a great day. More soon, but HM was a stupendous sweeper who stayed as busy as a border collie herding sheep. He even assisted a "wounded" Tuono to get home and still caught up with us. :clap

    How do you like the Dunlop Missions?
    Someone was telling me that they are heavy tires, compared to other adv tires.

    They are heavy. Compared to the previous tires, Mitas E-07+'s, which probably aren't exactly light themselves, the Dunlops are 2lbs heavier in the front and 4lbs heavier in the rear. You can feel it. On a heavy bike like the Stelvio it's ok--just--but I wouldn't put them on a smaller bike. Otherwise they're excellent and a great compromise tire for riding varied surfaces.

    I'm not entirely convinced all is well but it runs ok so I'm cautiously using it.
