I know, man! I didn't realize the chain was so dry until I looked at those pictures myself! It amazed me, because this bike was at a Honda dealership from April until December, and I had assumed they would have serviced it all that time it was there! But apparently all they did was repair the damage from when it tumbled and got damaged.
Right after I shot the pic of the rear brake line and looked at it later that night, I rushed out the next day and bought some chain lube. NOW it looks like new!
One thing I found out that I really like: Chain WAX (spray) works 100% better than Chain LUBE (petroleum based) for not flinging all over! In fact, I saturated my chain and had it dripping! But I waited the "10-15 minutes to allow it to set" before riding off. To my total amazement, NOT ONE DROP flung onto my back rim or swing arm!!! Not like any other lube I have used! 99.999% of the chain lubes I've tried flung all over the place, even hours after applying! NOT this chain wax! I'm hooked now!
BTW, thanks for the compliments, Bigdaa!
