    I can attest to the quality of this product. It makes your bike feel BEYOND smooth. It's awesome.

    And I usually only go thru a 16oz bottle a season. But that of coarse depends on how much you use.

    Looks like a great product. Signed up, all ready to buy. Got a coupon for 20% as a new customer. Was getting the entire kit, 16, 32, and 4 oz bottles, two cloths.

    $14 shipping? Really? For something that weighs a pound and a half? I'll wait until July 2nd and try to apply both the new customer coupon and the free shipping.

    Well, they won't accept both coupons, don't know why I expected them to. Companies that charge full retail plus a handling charge disgust me. Mad Dog needs to carry this stuff.

    Suggest him to carry it. I spoke to him about it when i was in NY.

    I think the $14 shipping is actually pretty true. That's allot of product you're buying.

    Nope. I tried two sets in the shopping cart, $15. Tried a 16oz bottle, $13. There's a handling charge.

    I'd really like to try it, but won't get ripped off to do it.

    For shits-n-giggles I went and put a 4oz bottle in the shopping cart. The price was $7.99. Shipping was $12.61, or 157% of the product cost.

    So, $15 for two complete sets, $14 for one set, $13 for a 16oz bottle, and $12 for a 4oz bottle.

    If anyone else wants to buy some and split shipping I'd go that route. This isn't about the money, it's the principle.

    Well here my 2 cents on the stuff, its not worth the money to me. I have been using the old 50/50 mix of hydrogen peroxide and water for years and it works better than anything else I tried even this stuff. The bug slide gives the added polish surface but I already have a zillion waxes,detailers and such for that. My goal was to find something easier to remove bugs not wax the bike.

    It's not going to be as beneficial to you guys anyway. For the guys with fairings it's awesome stuff.

    And for what it's worth Tim, I usually buy on the special patriotic weekends when they wave shipping.
