    I rode home driving like grandpa and parked it until I replaced the chain

    This is the first motorcycle I've owned and the first I've worked on, so I've made some rookie mistakes, live and learn
    Lol awesome! I know what to look for now!

    Another reason to replace it is if it gets inconsistent: if slack changes dramatically as you spin the rear wheel, it's overdue for replacement.
