Washing is important get it as clean as possible and dry it the best you can. Enjoy your bike is the key if you enjoy washing it then do so......me I enjoy watching someone else wash mine, preferably in a bikini......

Get a bucket, fill with water and soap, use a soft cloth to wash the bike... Spray water & soap off... Dry if you want.


Dammit man, I spilled my drink laughing so hard. What an awesome F'n response.
