Wow. That is terrible looking. Did water get in? Those look far worse than my new-to-me KLR's 12 year old fork oil looked... Like not even in the same league. Though, you can't really judge fork oil until you've tasted it... As I found out after popping seals with compressed air WITHOUT covering them with a rag. Blech!

BTW, when is the DVD due out?
