Well, the bike got out of the shop about a week ago, and I managed to get some small ridin' time in. It's been great! I figured out I get 45 mpg, which is pretty cool!

I got a question or two about cleaning my bike, though. I bought that simichrome paste reccomended here a while back, but haven't used it yet. I notice there is some rust on parts of the chrome, most noticeably around the spokes of the wheels. Should I get the rust off first, or will the polish take care of it?

Also, the gas tank: should I just clean and wax it like I would a car?

Thanks! I love riding and want to look good, too!
