We tried to have it cleaned after each ride, but it wasn't always the case. It did rain a lot and very hard for a couple of days (wish I had my chain cleaner and lube) and there was a road after Battambang Vietnam, that was very interesting (we passed by many car carcasses, just left there, the road was amazingly awful), its basically a dirt road composed of holes! That road was just potholes, mud, flood, and made for an ***** and wrist breaking experience.
If it wasn't cleaned, I pretty much just drowned my chain in lube. I was thinking I should have loaded a midcage instead of a long cage, but it would not really have mattered as there were village trails composed of just sand and mud floods where the DT's were mostly half logged in water.
