Using anything to access, even a toaster, shortens the life of a mechanical object. I know lots of people who own pristine Colt Pythons (they have delicate timing issues), and I owned one that went back to Colt every year or two because I actually shot mine.Jack-Jack said:does the build-up shorten the life of the motor which is engineered as the mild TC-88.
I have knives that are "drawer queens." I'm carrying a two month old Spyderco Calypso Jr. that has 'love scratches' and that has been re-sharpened a few times.
My bed has a headboard with a few dents, if you catch my drift.
It's metal, it wears. I drive a 95-inch motor. I drive it whenever I can, and sometimes I drive it like I stole it, especially if I ride with Mickey Foster.
Enjoy the bike. Figure it this way, someone's going to ride it for fun. That can be you, or the guy who is bequeathed it in your last will.
