    ...and I complain about cleaning all those spokes on my bike! Sheesh! This would make things far worse from a detailing perspective! (not that I've cleaned my bike since the Iowa Rally last year...)

    Not to worry about it! The total loss castor oil lubrication system would soon take your mind completely off the heat problem.

    Friedle is right.

    During WWI it was also discovered that the vapors of Castor Oil had an extreme laxative effect. Not quite sure what action those early pilots were able to take.
