One guy on here sold his Leggero belt covers because he bent a valve doing this.
In a way, those open belts are art in motion... but I'm not doing it.

I knew a guy who sort of did the rag thing oiling his chain while it was in gear on the center stand... his career as a movie critic is, sadly, over because I... errr, HE... can only give 1.5 thumbs up. Just saying.
