All Meguiars products, the NXT line! The soap, liquid wax, also touch up wax for the quick touch-up washes before a weekend ride or something. Haven't used any of the other products in the line, but I've heard they're great! Meguiars is the absolute best cleaning products for vehicles, period.

Re: How do you clean your \'baby\'

Check out www.autopia.org for good info on detailing/washing/waxing/polishing tips and reviews

I currently use Zaino Bros. products on my car and bike. You can't beat the longevity of Zaino, period. Synthetic sealants (wax/polish to most people) will last a lot longer, but tend to lack depth (like a plastic-y look)
I am soon switching to Klasse All-In-One, Klasse Sealant Glaze, & S100 Wax... all layered in that order. Real Carnuba waxes provide more depth, but only lasts anywhere from 6-8 weeks. Oh yea, Einszett Perls Shampoo is great if you want a shine as soon as you're done washing. Follow with a detailing spray, such as Zaino Z-6, after every wash and wax for the bling.

Re: How do you clean your \'baby\'

My bike has never seen water in the 13 months I've owned it. I only use Honda's Pro Polish on anything that needs cleaning. When it comes time for the wheels or something that has a decent amount of dirt buildup (more than just bugs), I'll use a simple citrus degreaser.

If anyone questions my method, I challenge you to a duel!

Honda polish for everything except the wheels and anything with grease on it I use simple green.

Of course after you wash with soap and water.
Same here......I don't see why people are so scared of washing there bikes with soap & water. It's fuggin motorcycle....water is not going to turn it into a pile of rust.

As for the people who say there bike has never seen water....what do you do when you're out riding and it starts to rain?? Run and hide?

I agree 100% NJ!!!! When I bought the 02' the guy told me it has never seen a bit of water. That was the dirtiest bike underneath the fairings and guages. Road grime that was sticky EVERYWHERE that the god-like honda polish didn't get to. I swore like a................. BITCH without a tampon!!!
