    Default How often do you wash your bike?

    For my Ultra, I tend to not wash mine till after I ride in the rain. I may dust it off, or clean the bugs off the front end.

    I dust often with pledge I washed my bike once last year I haave well water and it looked worse after I washed it. If I have the choice of 2 hrs of washing or riding I know what I will pick.

    when I had my BD K-9 ...in 5 years...the only time I washed it...was at Gas Man's house back in Aug of 08...we got caught in a big ass storm with rain and hail!....all the other times I wiped off with detail spray...

    now with my Ultra...I will wash if I get caught in the rain....but will use detail spray for bugs and dust after rides

    I think there's a middle ground where I am, somewhere between dusty and really dirty.

    During riding season, its something I can do when I cant ride - either bad weather or I'm on kid duty.

    I get some criticism for being too anal about my bike, but I take pride in it, and how it looks.

    It depends on where im goin or what im doing. If its dirty after rain i always wash it. If its dusty i usually just wipe it down. However if im goin on a trip or to a bike night or something i will give it a full wash

    I'm usually like Kosher... but sometimes I surprise people in how dirty my bike has been.

    Always after a ride in the rain and then a detail spray between to keep it clean.
