  • Dry "n Shine

    Last time I went to the NAPA Auto parts, I saw this product. Paid approximately $5 and I can't believe how well it works!

    I sprayed the bike all over specially the fairing since it picked up some bugs from yesterdays run. I also spray the windshield and then by the time I spray everything, I start wiping it down! It melts the bug guts off the bike while leaving a real good shine.

    I'm sure we all have something that works for you, but I'm sold on this one.

    $20K+ bike and a $5 wash. Frank, buddy ol' pal, bring that bike by for a real detail and you'll never do that again.

              An easy way to clean the windshield after a long trip is to let it soak in a warm soapy bathtub. A buddy of mine swears by it. I ain't done it yet though.

                Does not have alcohol and I use it on the windshield. No streaks there nor on the chrome! But I'm going to have to take CLL's offer and see what he does to detail his.

                Croc...if you have a car, try it on the car! It's a pretty good deal for the money!

                  The best way to clean a wind shield is to place a wet towel over it and let it soak the plastic and soften the bugs off and rinse of and blow dry.

                    'I've done that and it's one of the best way..warm wet towel...Never thought of the blow dry follow-up.

                        Turtle Wax and RainX both make spray on cleaners and wax. Been using them for years on the bike and cars. The Turtle wax product can be sprayed on after you wash your car/bike and is still wet. Polishes while you are drying. Always been very happy with both.

                          Beware of RainX and the windshield. It has chemicals that can crack it. I lost one already.

                            I clean my bike with Pledge, unless it is real dirty I will wash it, but I try to wipe it down with a small California duster then Pledge it, then I always wash my wheels to keep em looking good. BTW never knew that about RainX.

                              I have been thinking about getting one of those fairing bra's, or whatever ya call them. Spray it down with armor all before you go riding and the bugs practically fall off on their own. California dusters are great!
