I love a good round of magic! Motorcycle is maneuverable enough you could toss the bike on its side to melt the wax into where it needs to go too.
Don't forget your mood candles when camping so you'll be prepared for any event.

I've seen that before. But never had to try it yet.

I used grease on my lugs when I remove the wheels.

Best stuff I ever used was called Chem A Loose. Felt like a mild acid when you got it on your hands. Just spray a little on and it would creep in and free up most any seized nut. Got banned a few years ago. My favorite now is Mouse Milk but there are oodles of penetrating fluids in spray bombs out there that will break the rust bond and ease removal of rust seized nuts.

You know, the internet is about 95% screaming bullshit, and social anthropologists will someday look back on it as worse for society than the Black Death, but damned if sometimes you don't learn something cool from it.
