Laugh if you want ... but ...

While on the road and racking up high mileage days I lube the chain every evening. I found I always made a mess with the spray, so with bike on center stand I use a travel toothbrush to apply a modest amount of 90W gear oil to the tops of links on the bottom run of chain. I have one link painted with white-out so I know when I've gone full-way round. It only takes a few cc of oil and chains whisper my name with reverence

PS: synthetic gear oil doesn't have the nasty smell of the regular stuff.
