WHY?????

How come everytime i lube my chain, and I take it our for a spin, the oil is all over my rear wheel. I put the required amount, i dont over do it, and i wipe some of it off when i finish. What am i doing wrong?? Is it because i have white wheels?? Or does it happen to everyone??.....

Depends on what you use....I use PJ1 and let it sit for hours afterwards...That still gets all over the rim and swingarm. After this can I am gonna try something else.

Overnite is best.
I'm gonna shock everybody and say I only spray WD-40 on my chain.

It's a topic that few can agree on, (sorta like one of GixxerBill's threads).

I have read some things that say that since modern chains have O-rings, the grease is sealed in, and therefore the chain doesn't need spray lube. In fact, I feel the spray on lube leaves a slightly sticky residue that could attract grit and this could actually SHORTEN the life of your chain.
So, why WD-40? It cleans the chain and helps to prevent the sideplates from rusting.

Flame on....

Lube the underside of the chain, that way when it spins it forces the lube into the chain, not off.

Also a warmed out and clean chain is more recommended than cold chain.
Ride it for 5 min before lubing, clean it (W40) and lube it (chain wax).... I lube before full day ride and do not get anything in my tire....
