Mysterious Blob

I got to work this morning and took off my motorcycle boots and found a HUGE blob of grease on the rear of my left boot. Could it have been slung out from under the front sprocket cover? I know it accumulates there. Funny thing is I looked at the bike and see no excessive grease/oil around the chain. I always wipe the excess off when I clean it.

Anyway, my overpants have a little on them, but my work pants are likely ruined with dark smears of grease.

To much chain lube on a dirty chain is my guess

How would the blob get on the back of your boot & pant leg from the front sprocket? sorry to hear about your good pants getting trashed, thats supposed to be one of the benefits of wearing overpants!

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

The chain is not over-lubed and it gets cleaned/lubed every 500 miles (about every other weekend).

I wondered the same thing.

Maybe it didn't come from my bike. My wife did just open the garage door and chuck my boots in there last night. She was mad because she stumped her foot on them and just threw them out there. I don't usually have lumps of grease lying around, but I guess that's a possibility.

You probably picked it up off the highway. Sounds like 5th wheel grease off of a semi. I see that stuff all the time.

Nope. But I did hit a 15 pound coon once. I would have picked him up and put him in my bag, but it pooped and puked all over my bike when I hit it...that and his buddy was poking at him wondering why he wasn't moving.

I took out a skunk and a dove once. It seems the 919 is an attractant for animals that want to commit suicide.

I almost hit a duck yesterday. Weird... Bugs and animals seem to go right for it.
