There's nothing wrong with being competitive AND looking good on the track Michel :!:

Nothing wrong with having a nice looking clean bike the real advantage is you are checking every inch of your bike as you clean and may well spot things before they come a problem. A well presented machine means you take pride in your bike both cosmetically and mechanically. IF I where to go look at a bike to buy and it was rough on the outside i would wonder what the engine was like in the inside so would probably walk away especially if the owner was vague on component milage, :D

Don't let my "patina" fool you, although it currently resides in my living room, it's a full on race bike. Seven events last year, and hopefully one additional event this year. Third in my class Championship, and despite my injuries I even managed to touch a knee by the end of the season! I just believe fully in putting the same amount of effort into the beauty of the bike as I do into the chassis/powertrain development.

Plus I just like em pretty...

Michel always hated cleaning and polishing his bikes, has got nothing to do with his age.
He did not like to ride in the wet, not because it is slippery, but it would end up in a dirty bike :lol: :lol:
