my bike seems to look quite clean other than the wheelssss???
over the past 7 years, i've owned 3 different bikes. i remember washing each bike 1 time. first one was the day before i sold it. second one was after i had an early season ride and found some mud and water. third was right before i removed the street fairings in order to fit the race fairings. that was 2 years ago. i ended up selling the street fairings after that.
i wipe off the rear wheel when i lube the chain and get a little overspray on it, but that doesn't really count. sometimes i take a magic eraser and scrub the dead bugs off the tank and the front fairing. that's about it.
mostly, i'd rather just spend my time riding it...
