They are not as bad as the old oilers especially the "automatic drippers" that left oil all over. I think the chain oil must have improved and is much more grease-like since it tends to stay where placed.

Looks AWESOME! But then I'm kinda bias toward WW's. I use Bel Ray's Blue Tac chain lube. Works like a charm and definitely keeps those WWW's clean.

White is right.
Rear ww gets dirty faster than front even with shaft drive. I use westley's bleche white. Some swear by it, some swear because of it, search and learn.

I like the look of white walls, but as I almost always ride in mud they would be grey walls within a week and after that they would just look bad..

Modern chain lubes are pretty good at not making a mess. I wouldn't even think about running a white wall tire using the Honda recommended 90W gear oil to lube the chain.

When I first got my 750ACE (before I discovered BelRay Chain Lube) the oil from the chain would actually end up on the front fender on the opposite side of the chain. And that was using a very light coat of gear oil, and letting it sit overnight.
