So, I was going to wash my bike, starting with a good chain cleaning and lube. Well I started the chain cleaning when I looked up and noticed some storm clouds moving in. How nice. I figured I could probably finish the cleaning (the the chain was already covered with Kerosene anyway) and put the chain wax on before the stormed moved in. Well, I was wrong. As soon as I had finished cleaning the chain, got it looking all nice and new again (well almost nice and new) it started rainng. I went inside washed some of the Kerosene off of my hands and when I came back out, it was pouring so I decided my best bet was to be done for today. My question is I never got a chance to put the wax on. Is it ok to leave the bike ( I covered it up to keep most of the water off of the chain) without the wax on if I'm not going to ride it again untill I do put it on? And if it is ok, how long is the maximum I can wait seeing as how its supposed to really storm tomorrow?
