Well someone on the ranch left the shop door open and the dog:)mad: ) had a field day taking a leak all over a nice spotlessly clean bike. I just got done washing it and all is ok except for the front rim. There are some corrosion spots from the urine. How can I get this out without polishing the whole rim? Or am I screwed?

Thanks

ps I will be back later with some pictures of it.

I don't know this for a fact, but I hear that if you skin your dog and rub the spot with the inside of his pelt, it won't get the marks out but it will relieve some of your aggravation. For a few minutes...

WOW!! Same exact thing happened to me last week. Got the bike in the garage under a cover and on the battery tender. We let the dog out the garage in the morning. He'd had a big day the day before, ate and drank late, got up and went immediately to the door the next morning. He usually is calm, waits for the garage door to open - but not this time. He goes straight to the rear wheel and takes a long, satisfying leak - right in front of me. Funny as hell! No problems though, as I was able to rinse it immediately.

He may be trying to tell you he's mad about all the time you leave him behind while you go riding on your bike. my wife was watching this show called the dog whisperer and this guy goes and helps people with problems like this. the first ones free from me though, no charge.

must be a METRIC dog. might i suggest tacos tonight?
:yikes: Maybe the opposite!! My wife wanted to name him "Harley" and I thought that was too cutesy. Maybe he's always been PO'd about that -- and just wanted me to know!!

Alum. polish will make it a lot less noticeable... you could also take this opportunity to powdercoat the wheels black.

So anyway... how was the dog and 'tater stew?

This happened to me: sitting in the cafe, bike in front of me, lady comes with the dog, lady stops, the dog stops....dog piss ON THE BIKE, lady waits for dog to finish the job, I watch and can not believe what my eyes see.......fifteen seconds......I hesitate to react since I can not decide weather to kill the lady or to kill the dog......they go away.....now, actually, I was pissed not the bike....Unbeliveable!
