Question Chain tarnish

Just wanted to share this because it's damned weird. I had to ride on some salty roads last week and now there is a surface rust / tarnish to my chain rollers. It's an '09 with about 7900 miles so still OE chain and sprockets. The weird part is only every other roller stained along the entire length?

Yep, officially weird. It will all polish off when you ride the bike so also only temporarily weird.
