Summer time PSA - chain maintenance

Just a friendly reminder to be careful when trying to clean/lubricate your chain. I talked with a buddy of mine from high school - about a month or so ago he was attempting to do the maintenance on his 2017 Multistrada chain (on the center stand, motor running, in gear), when his rag got caught. We now call him stubby. Lost the tip (just about the whole first joint on one finger and the tip of another)

I know he was asking for trouble trying to clean it with the motor running, I think he figured that out now as well.

I'll continue to clean/oil mine with the engine off, turning slowly by hand. But will also pay more attention in the future!

Why why why do people hold a rag on the chain with the engine running.
