Anyone still using pledge to short cut cleaning and shining their bike?  Use to work great.  I guess they must have some good replacements for good old dependable pledge these days.  I don't recommend pledging the seat.  It makes it very slippery.    Well you said I can say anything...

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know "why" I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Checked the Armor all site.  They dont' recommend the cleaning wipes on painted services.    You might try Scott's Ulta soft.  Works better than charmin.  Doesn't disintegrate in your hand and is cheaper.

If pledge was good before then it still is.  I have not been using it as much but when I did for a couple years I saw not bad effects.  ----------------------------------  South Central Area Director  Email scad@cog-online.org    <p align="left">My Photos<br

Plus one on the Turtle Wax Ice.  I also really like the Meguirs NXT spray wax with a micro-fiber cloth.  I use one micro-fiber cloth to wipe the wet spray wax, and a second one to do a final wipe over to get any smunges.  Works great !  Bob.

When I decide to clean the bike, Plexus is my cleaner/polish of choice.  Works well on all surfaces and is specialized for plastics.  Probably much too slippery for use on the seat. For the Corbin leather seat I use their leather conditioner.      --  Steve Smith, COG #3184  COG Northeast Area Director  (somewhere in south central CT)     If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space.

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

I'm like Steve. I use Plexus For the windshield and bike a lot. But now and then, like today, I use ICE as well. But I use the liquid. I coat everything but my seat. Just like Steve, I use my Corbin cream on my Corbin seat.    Bionic Bob  COG & AMA member  First C14 CDA member #0220  2008 C14 & 2003 Mean Streak

I have been using "Wax as you Dry" with great results all over the bike. The black plastic and powder coated parts still look like new after a year. Plus it leave you more time to ride...

Plexus for the shield and visors and Honda Spray Cleaner for the rest. Soap and water if its real bad. The Honda Cleaner is real good for bugs,spray it on, let it soak and off they come easy. Its also good on the seat, cleans and protects without being slippery.
