Deeper Cleaning

For all you Deep Cleaners...

I'm still enjoying cleaning up the Busa, in between rides. It aggravates me, to see dust laying in all those small holes that's on the bike, once I'm through cleaning (I clean with Original Bike Wash & Pledge only). Trying to wind a rag on the end, to clean in those spots, just doesn't get it. I don't spray water on my bike at all, so that's out.

I thought about getting some Q-tips, but the cheap ones unravel the fuzz on the ends. So I found some applicators, used by women in the beauty section at walmart, and they are perfect for what I need. I bought a bag of 80 applicators, for just a couple of dollars. The tips, are held together tightly, so they don't pull apart, while your using them. I think they are a plus, because one end looks like a sharpy tip, while the other end is oval & flat shaped.

Works great!

With a lot of therapy you should be out of the institution in a year or two. The multiple closeups of you getting in all the nooks and crannies are priceless!

Seriously, never be too proud to reach out for help.

And I thought I was anal about motohygiene?


Why don't you spray water on your bike?

I just never did. Now I've never gotten it really grimmy & dirt, dirty from like, long rides in the rain or something. I guess, if I get the dirt really packed on, i'll use a some water then. But until then, it's cleaner in a can for me :laugh:

I will say, that I go through a lot of micro fiber clothes. I buy them, pack of 12, from walmart, for under 5 bucks. They are blue, & white. You've probably seen them. (Automotive section of the store).

I'm really not that bad. I just use the swab to take one quick little swipe, in the holes, and that's it. Plus I do it, when I have a little time on my hands. In my shop, with my favorite music playing, cleaning up the Busa; now that's surreal! :)

I'm the same way with all of my rides.. I spend hours cleaning them. I also don't wash my bike with water.. I don't think i have ever washed any of my bikes with water.. just a preference.

Now if you were to admit to talking to the bike while you did that I'd agree with Tekken and say you need some help :laugh:
