No, but he may take you into a dark corner and show you the finer points of polishing 🥴

I understand that Geoff is very enthusiastic when he polishes his pipes.
If he does get you in a dark corner and shows you his technique I am sure that you will be very satisfied.

I had cause to inspect Richards pipes yesterday, well to be more precise, the pipes on his /  my old Versys 1000. And I must say he is doing a half decent job of keeping them up to the care levels that they were accustomed to before they left DL8 5HN.   So well done that man.

I have no doubt, that he snuck a look at the pipes on my bike, although he made no comment regarding the 2 beautiful highly polished pipes exiting my bikes engine. Richard did however state that the bike looked really nice and clean, ( clean ! )   :192: doesn't even come close.   :2:

Zombie ... where did you get the Astonish Oven Cleaner?  I used to use that when I lived in the USA ($1 from Walmart).  Can only find the small (150ml) packages of it here in the UK, and usually at 2 a pop.  Still good value, but I'd love to be able to get some for a quid.

Hi Sylvester,sorry about late reply.
I got in pound shop was about 5/6 years ago but before lock down was in  cheapo shops for about 2:50 give or take it goes hard on top when sort of goes off but just mush it in all good.
As I said only done twice great stuff and not use autoseal yet.
It's so safe on hands,no toxic fumes,splashes in eyes and pet safe.
Also it don't damage metal as Harpic got caustic or sulfuric acid in it.
Also good for the environment.
You can by on eBay/Amazon even for 5  cheap ,lasts years.
I don't want liquid, because I could use elbow grease and sticks to green scotchbright

I am in the states at the moment and I though I would do my civic duty and get some for you but it is $12 in Walmart at the moment so no point to ask if you want some brought back.
