They don't even know what a choke knob is for. A BMW Motorcycle dealer shop manager recommended replacing the battery and entire charging system on a 1980s vintage BMW bike because he killed the battery trying to start it... He didn't know what a choke was!

My b model has a 75 mile an hour paint job, at dusk on a really foggy day it  almost looks ok but i really don't want to paint it then i may have to wax it and i can't lay tools all over the truck and set on the fender to work on it.

I think the last time my LFT was washed was in the 80's.  If I wash I would have to wax it and keep it clean. 

The tanker looks great. I wish I could do work like that.  Mike.

My fenders are painted, but that just means they buff up well after me sitting or laying on them!!!  There is no way to work on a B model and NOT scratch the fenders up.  I have a large rubber mat I can lay on it, but even that is a PITA and I don't use it very often.
