I hate to say this but already I'm getting some corrosion on the bike.

It's on the starter motor. It's no biggie but I've only had her six weeks and it's not as if i don't look after my bikes, I do.

I seem to remember my 2001 curvy had the same problem. I cured that problem by painting it.

What do you all think.

Can you buy WD-40 in the UK? It's a corrosion preventer. Just spray it on.
Yep we got WD-40 over here.

I'll give it a try on Friday on my weekly clean.

Cheers Madjohn.

PBR me ASAP...

No corrosion problems here, yet. But thanks for the heads up. I prefer boddingtons :)

I never thought you get Boddies over there, Not my cup of tea you understand but it's nice to see our American cousins are drinking our British beer.

I lived a couple summers in a beach town on the east coast and made a lot of friends over the pond; I also worked for a brand protection agency whose parent company was in the UK, Grove Park...every one of them makes fun of me and tells the Boddingtons is old man's beer. It is really hard to get out here on the west coast tho...Oregon is all about microbrew beers.
