Let me start off by saying that my gas powered leaf blower also converts into a vacum, so yesterday I decided to do some yard work and break out the leaf blower and put the attachments on for the vacum, I spent several hours vacuming up various debris, leafs, sticks and all the other stuff that gets sucked up. Well, today after a short ride, I decided to wash the bike and yes I blow dry it off with the leaf blower....... I know I'm not the only one who does this. So it was squeaky clean and looked great, I cranked up the blower to dry it off, next thing I know.......mud, sand, sticks and all kinds of junk came shooting out and is all over the bike. Ya, had to wash it down again, didn't use the blower to dry it off, thought a towel would be better this time. Felt so bad, I decided to break out the polish and pledge, spent 2 hours and a couple beers getting into all the nooks and crannies, looks like it just came of the show room.
