“Want a smooth ride?” does apply either way.

In the Spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.

I used to use White Lightning, but that stuff is pretty messy. My bike mechanic recommended Tri-Flow TF21010 Superior Lubricant.

Those recommendations are generally based on your previous orders. Yay for big data!

After reading your post, I have this in my head:


#6

Well, has anyone tried anal lube on their bike chain? I started putting Crisco on my scabs after reading an interview with a plastic surgeon; these off-label uses have to start somewhere.


#7

My local hardware offered a motorcycle chain lube. Close enough?


#8

But does it come in drums?


#9

The price is too high. You’d need a gofundme or whatever the kids call it to get that delivered to a honeymoon cottage.

I’m sure Chuck Tingle can easily come up with a good scenario of being pounded in the butt by one’s own bike and needing the appropriate lube. In fact imma tweet at him.

or just a wealthy benefactor :slight_smile:

Isn’t getting pounded in the butt by one’s own bike a recurring sight-gag on the Benny Hill Show?


#13

I’m sure but that’s no excuse for the sheer lack of a good bike Tingler


#14

I’m actually surprised that WD-40 hasn’t gotten in on the action so to speak.


#15

Amazon’s search engine is really bad. Bad Amazon! Naughty!


#16

I think I was looking for car parts that time it suggested nipple clamps (new ones!) and a country album.


#17

I’ve never seen so many ‘naughty stores’ as I saw in Nashville.

The course of true love never did run smooth … until now. Introducing Lube Life.

It could be auto-matic…
It could be hydro-matic…
Why, it could be greased lightning!
