good all around
easy to apply. I used a rag to catch over spray and wiped the chain with the first pass it helped clean the old grease off really well.

My new go-to chain lube
Having just switched to the ProGold MFR chain lube from my previous standby, Motorex 622 chain lube, I was doubtful how much better the ProGold would be than the Motorex.
The ProGold sprays on easily with a narrow spray that is easily controllable. It is thinner than the Motorex and feels like it penetrates throughout the chain better. It also seems to stay on better. I rode for 450 miles through rain, 90 degree sun and some light dirt/gravel roads and when I got home, the chain was clean, having picked up no grime and the chain still felt well lubed, not seeming to have come off in the two torrential downpours that I ran into, one lasting for 45 minutes, so heavy that cars were pulling over to the side of the road.
This is now my new favorite chain lube

My Preferred Lube
I have previously used BelRay and Silkoline lubes. I use ProGold bicycle chain lube and recommend it to the customers in my bicycle shop. When I learned that ProGold also made motorcycle chain lube I decided to give it a shot and am glad that I did.
This lube is thin and clear. It penetrates well and, if not over-applied, does not fling and attracts very little dirt in contrast to other brands. As it begins to dry, it will not get tacky. It's the best chain lubricant I have used to date and I've stopped using anything else.

NOT a substitute for regular lube
This lube is meant for motorcycle chains, not for people. I thought I would clear this up because I can only imagine the consequences to be dire.
When used on chains, it works pretty well. They key to motorcycle lube, no matter what kind (barring wax), is to thoroughly clean the chain and apply a good amount everywhere. Next time you lube your chain (I lube every 100 miles or so but I'm also pretty meticulous about maintenance), take a disposable cotton cloth and wipe off all the excess grease built up in the last 100 miles by road grime and then reapply another light layer all over the chain. If you keep up with your lube intervals, the grime should rub off with little to no effort and keep your chain shiny and new.
Now this is why I believe thin-bodied lube is a good thing: while there is no tried-and-true test to determine what lube on the market works the best, you might as well go for something relatively cheap that won't cause a huge mess. Based on these two factors, a lube like this, in my opinion, is the best way to go. Barring a thin-bodied lubricant, my next recommendation would be gear oil, but I like spray cans because I hate the environment.
For 9 bucks, you really can't go wrong. I'd say it's worth a shot!

Keeps chain from gathering a lot of dirt
Although I don't have a lot of mileage on my chain with this lube it does keep the chain cleaner by not giving the dust and dirt something to cling to. I will have to report back on the longevity of the chain. I just put a new one on and this is the only lube that will be used on it other than what it was packed in from the factory. This lube does seem to be removing the manufacture's packing grease though. The chain is a non-O-ring chain.
