Re: Cicadas ... they're coming
During the semi-annual Love Bug season around here, which has started, I coat all front exposed areas of the bike with several coats of wax and don't wipe off the last one.
Bugs easily come off of the bike with a little water hose action. Most seem to go over the top of the windshield and only occasionally hit my face plate or helmet. I would not ride without a windshield.
If I forget the coat of wax, then either a soaking towel (hot water seems to help) for 15 minutes or hydrogen peroxide.
