I don't know about adjusting the chain daily. Check it, yes but probably won't need to adjust it that often. In 15,000 miles I've only adjusted mine 3 times - OEM Regina chain. A plentiful lube daily helps to keep it clean but real cleaning (cleaner & grunge brush) can be a little tedious on the road not to mention messy for the environment.

I usually ride for an hour or so in the morning to warm up the machine then stop in some inconspicuous, shaded dirt side road for a while - lube the chain and let the oil settle before checking it as well. Didn't burn a drop in 5700 miles on my last trip.

Great bike!
