A few drops of engine oil applied to the chain before you ride  is as good as any . Just be sure not to get any on tyres or brakes .

I'd go with a dry lube in dry dusty weather, wet lube in wet weather. Well, I say that's what I'd go with, but as I ride shafties I don't give a stuff.

ACF coated[emoji106] and Scottish winter, telling me I need a good coating for dryness, and warmth! Bidding on ebay for a HEIN GERICKE CRUISE GTX there on at £105 buy it now, worth it I think, any advise gratefully received! [emoji106]

When I was a teen I used to go shooting with some mates, star shot and skeet, anyway I had a petrol hand warmer like a giant lighter that stayed lit all the time, they still make them and it will run for hours in your pocket, plus when you stop you can get your hands warm in moments with it. Image result for petrol hand warmers uk Cheaper than heated gloves and you can move it to different pockets to warm the bits that get cold and wet. Just a thought.
