P.S. Forgive me if I'm mistaken to lump Oregon in with California regarding heavy-handed government. :?

Lol... No, it seems that many have moved from California to Oregon and brought their various agenda's with them.
Protecting the environment is always a good thing... It's all how you go about it... So don't get me started :shock:
The real funny part is they are trying to make Oregon like the place that they moved from because they didn't like it... Strange :lol:

Anyhow... Fork Cleaner..
It is made to clean up the inside of your forks.
It smells a lot better then carb cleaner or brake cleaner.
I'll see if I can find a can..
If bikes are for kids I'll never grow up.

I keep a huge bottle of dawn around the shop.
I use it in my vapor blaster and parts washing buckets...
And yes, I wash my hands in it before I go touch the computer 8-)
