I think it's pretty damn funny when people use the excuse "id rather spend time riding..." Than cleaning my bike.


Shut the fcuk up. Your a lazy fcuk that doesn't like to clean.... I find that most individuals who use that line have a messy car and a messy house as well. There's down time when you can clean your bike.... You're just to lazy and a dirty human being. I ride the shit out of my bike and still find time to give her a good detail at least once a week... And yes, I ride in pouring rain as well.

Quit using riding as an excuse to excuse your lazy ass. I can only imagine how you like your women.

I use bleach white. Gets all the oils and grime off the tire and rims leaving them nice and clean.
Just have to be careful not to get it on the paint.

i find i can spend my time doing more enjoyable things then cleaning my bike or truck. thankfully i make the car wash guy at my work clean my truck, my bike is a track whore thats usually cleaner then most bikes out there (pre wrecks) and my girl well theres a pic floating around the respect thread so ill let you be the judge

Re: cleaning wheels/bike

Chain cleaner on a cloth is the chain lube is heavy on the wheel. Otherwise goo gone on a rag will remove it from the wheels. I usually use goo gone on my wheels. It's fascinating how well it works on everything!!!!

i don't ride in the rain. at least, i haven't in the last several years. still don't give a shit how clean/dirty it is.

i wash my car fairly regularly. but, i drive it every day and in the rain and in the snow.

there's down time, but i don't use it to clean the damn bike, cuz i just don't care that much about it being a little dirty.

i do admit that i'm not a very good housekeeper. oh well...

i'm not one of those dudes who needs a clean bike to attract a fresh piece of ass. i actually have a personality that does it quite well. it's damn sure not my pretty face, after all...
