Looking for tips on cleaning them off my bike. It seems if the temperature is about 70 right around sunrise, they are everywhere. It looks like I'm riding thru snow.
:help:

S1000 cleaner works for me.

Warm wet motel towel and lay it across the windscreen to soften dried bugs then wipe.

And if your not on the road take your old ladys best towel and do the above.

Let me know how that works for ya:wink:

I can attest to the warm wet towel trick, do that a bunch while on trips.

I also use Bug Slide (http://www.twowheelmichigan.com/showthread.php?2339-Bug-Slide)

I use this but I wouldn't buy it from Grainger: http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/TURTLE-WAX-BugTar-Remover-1UER9?gclid=CLfs-ouAgrgCFci23godOBIA8w&cm_mmc=PPC:GooglePLA-_-Fleet%20and%20Vehicle%20Maintenance-_-Automotive%20Cleaning/Appearance-_-1UER9&ci_src=17588969&ci_sku=1UER9&ef_id=rk5PKvL0LRAAAEtF:20130626150736:s

If you do use the old lady's warm towel when she finds out and starts screaming use that opportunity to say you cheated on her with her sister and she is next. If you live beyond that I recommend a white dragon or a cleveland steamer.

Mud, why wouldn't you buy it from Grainger? They just charge too much?

I have that same bug & tar remover... use it for tar from wheel spit on the cars.

I assume so - but you'd have to check Meijer or Autozone or Murrays to verify. I just typically go to Murrays or Meijer and buy a spray bottle. Lasts me like 5 years. I just happened to find a link to it on Grainger when I googled it.
