Confession of a slob

My confession: I don't wash my bike very often. I mean I'll give it a little spit now and again to clean the bugs off, but mostly I just ride it. It looks pretty good from a distance, but up close, ugh.
I know, I should take better care of her. I mean I change the oil and tires when I need to, and have the other basics taken care of by the dealer pretty much on schedule...when I can afford it. And love the way she rides and handles.
But let's face it, if you want to ride a clean and shiny machine, you have to wash it just about after every ride. Too much washing for me. Don't think I could afford the water bill it must take to own a Harley!
Any other slobs out there?

Re: Confession of a slob

Meese takes the prize. Literally. He won a set of tires from his local dealer in some type of "worst ugly bike" contest. He has more species of bugs on his bike than most university entomology departments. There are so many layers of bugs, you could remove the panels from underneath and the bike would hold its shape.

I would rather ride than wash, but I do try to keep the bugs from building up on the oil cooler and radiator. Another thing that I do often (about once a month) is treat those expensive Bill "Rocky" Mayer seats with the "Leather Amore" they provided, to protect them from sun and rain. Finally, I like a clean windscreen. Even if I don't wash the bike, I will take the windscreen off from time to time, and clean it when I shower. I take my showers outside in the backyard, so it is convenient to clean the windscreen at the same time. (My kids would say "TMI". At least it keeps the police helicopters from disturbing our neighborhood.)

I wish I could find the time to wash and wax my bike before long rides. I believe that waxing the bike gives it more protection from kicked up debris (sand, pebbles, gunk) and helps keep the bugs from sticking. It always seems that last minute farkling and pre-trip maintenance fills up the time. Oh well.

I get around to a real wash and wax about once or twice a year at most. It feels good to ride on a freshly cleaned bike, and I don't mind the teasing I take from my fellow long distance riding friends when they see it.

Re: Confession of a slob

I suppose I qualify as a slob-wannabe. A bike covered with dust, dirt, grime, animal viscera and bugs is a bike that has ridden many miles and has stories to tell. Like the advertisement says, "Never been polished, never gonna be polished." On the other hand, a bike in such condition is probably owned by a semi-skilled worker, who never sees a dentist, rarely changes the oil in his t-shirt and has enough dirt under his fingernails to qualify for a geologic survey. Said owner is usually found seated at his, or her, own table downwind from the other diners. Of course, we all know that isn't true. Well, maybe some if it is.

Then again, it's a quality bike that should show off its best characteristics by standing tall and polished high enough that the reflection of a yardstick shows all 36 inches.

Every now and then I succumb and give the bike a thorough cleaning, waxing and polishing. But who am I kidding? I live at the end of a 3/4 dirt and stone lane. If I clean my bike before leaving the house, it's dirty by the time I get to the mailbox. Which I why I wonder why other riders tell me to "Keep the shiny side up." The only shiny part of my bike is the reflector in the headlight assembly. If I'm keeping that up, I must be doing a wheelie.

It's unlikely that I'll wash and clean the bike when it's raining. And if it's nice out why am I washing and cleaning the bike when I could be riding it?

But let's be realistic. Cleansing agents, degreasers, polishers, buffers, waxes, micro fibre cloths, sprays and brushes constitute a billion dollar industry. (If you doubt me, just glance through a Griot's Catalog). By keeping our bikes clean we are doing our part to keep the American economy afloat.

And if any of you believe any of this, let me know; I have some swampland in Florida I'm trying to sell.

Take care,
Chris

Re: Confession of a slob

I keep mine 'clean' but I'm far from being a fanatic. The toothbrush and Q-Tip treatment are more of an annual event than weekly. My main concern is avoiding letting dead bugs or other harsh road debris attack the paint beyond what a little elbow grease will fix. Besides, if you don't wait too long all it takes is to spray on something like S-100 and hose it off. I'm lazy enough to really appreciate that.

Hi Steve. My name's Chris. It's been 27 days since I last washed my bike. I confess that there may be a power greater than me. Alas!

Take care,
Chris

Re: Confession of a slob

Just trade the LT for a GS then you never have to wash it just let the rain wash off the big chunks. Wash the wind shield so that you can see and ride some more

Re: Confession of a slob

I confess, I'm a SLOB too!

It used to be embarrassing to ride with my best friend, who thought nothing of getting out the rags, spray wash and polish at breaks, rest stops and always at the end of every ride. I used the time to rest, pee and hydrate.

Washing and the occasional wax were never a priority except, as Patrick2000 said, before the sale. In Florida, because of the love bugs, as the season begins, I put an extra coat of wax on the front end and then not buff it off. Makes it so much easier to simply hose off them little messy critters after a ride! If you didn't, they would dissolve whatever they were on and leave a permanent mark.

I did tend to keep the windshield clean and had a simple system laid out after each daily ride that really didn't take long at all.

I did regularly wash the bike after each 6,000 mile fluid(s) change which made it easy to remember.

I can't wait to not wash my new bike......

I'm sorry, but if you clean the seat off, you really can't call yourself a slob.

I'm very jealous you have a new GTL to not wash! I'm still not washing my old LT.

Re: Confession of a slob

Mine gets a good wash and wax at least once before the start of riding season. Most cleaning is on the windshield every couple rides, seams I attract bugs. I generally wide the dust off when I notice a build up with a micro fiber rag I keep in the side case.
I had a bag on front of my last bike I refused to clean the bugs off of the hole time I had it, my wife hated it.
We were seated on a bench at a little touristy town one summer watching the bikes roll into town. I pointed out the bikes that people rode in and the ones that were trailered in by the bugs that were on the windshields and what people were wearing.

Howdy, Folks.
One of the things I like about my new Scarabeo is the windshield is short enough that I can see the road over it without having to clean it. I went by the dealer the other day for the first scheduled maintenance and saw my old LT on the showroom floor. It was all bright and shiny. I just about didn't recognize it. The Scarabeo sits out at work so I figure if the Universe wants it clean, rain will come by and take off whatever It wants removed. My old International Scout needed the bug guts and road grime to keep the rusted out body panels glued to the frame or else they would all harmonize "Nearer My God to Thee" if I got over 70 mph.

The only thing I DO wash consistently are my bikes. I know they like it as they run better.

Don't hate me because I'm shiny

I enjoy washing the bikes. Washed the LT yesterday after a ride to the coast and back. It's sort'a therapeutic for me, like riding. And besides, she's a pretty lady, and fitting of a wash and wax every now and again.
Would YOU take a pretty woman out to dinner dressed in rags?
Nope, dress 'em up and show 'em off.

Re: Confession of a slob

I also enjoy spending time washing and waxing the big lady.
Yesterday was spent washing and waxing both of the 4 wheel BMW's and washing and waxing the LT.
All my vehicles are black. When they are clean and shined makes me feel good. Plus when I open the garage doors it looks like the bat cave.

I think that since it's a new bike, you can slide and keep the card this one time. But after a couple thousand miles, it's over.

Re: Confession of a slob

OK, we are having some sheet rock and tile replaced in our bathroom. The sheet rock guys are cutting just outside the garage and the dust is unbelievable, and landing all over the bike. I went for a quick ride Saturday and bafore I left, I backed the bike out anbd grabbed the water hose.......and rinsed the dust off my helmet and windshield. Most of the dust blew off fairly quick but I now have some cament looking stuff where the water ran down the bike cutting a trail through the dust. I'll get it later.
