Clearcoat fogging

Just wanted to post this as a heads up or caution for any of you that have a pool and store chemicals anywhere near your bike. A friend of mine stored his bike and pool chemicals (muriactic acid) close to each other. Unknown to him one of the acid bottles had a cracked cap on it. The summer heat caused evaporation of the acid into air which etched the clearcoat on his bike that was closest to the acid bottle. That side of his bike looked like a fog on the clearcoat. He had to have the whole bike repainted and it was a CVO, we know what those paint jobs cost $$$$. I mention this because until he found the cracked cap on the acid bottle it was a total mystery as to what had caused the fogged clearcoat.

I hope his insurance covered that. that's one expensive lesson/paint job.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.
