I admit it; it's a fetish. It makes you feel like you're really involved with your machine without the muss, fuss and seriousness of real nut-and-bolt maintenance, and it is a great way of noticing developing problems before they bite you.
The uneven surface of a golf ball helps it go faster, farther, and stay airborne longer.
A clean bike will have a smooth surface. By keeping your bike dirty and crusty with an uneven surface, you will also be able to go faster, farther, and stay airborne longer.
