Bugslide

I bought this stuff and I am very pleased with it. My bike seems to stay clean longer due to using bugslide. I applied it several times the first week or two but I don't apply it near as often now. Finally got a good coat on the bike. I've tried Meguiars detailer and several other cleaning/detailing products but I prefer this one. It's not cheap but I think it's worth it. Just my opinion, your results/opinion may vary/differ...

I had been using Bug Slide during the 2 seasons we get each year with those effbugs, and it is great just for that. A couple of weeks ago, we rode over to Alabama, and when parked, the bike next to mine literally glowed. All he uses is Bug Slide. So I got home and gave the scooter a good bath and then Bug Slide. Really makes a difference.

Both. I applied it after a wash job several times and I have used it after being covered in bugs. I carried it with me to California and kept the bike looking fresh with Bugslide.

There you go again, helping us spend our money on stuff we didn't even know we needed.

Got me for a bottle.


Would have been a good time of year to set up a group buy.

We get tons of "Love Bugs" down here and if you leave them on for long they etch the paint. Bugslide and microfiber cloth are always in my bike in the summer. Good stuff.

So you using this stuff all over the bike?
Ive used it for years on the windshield and maybe a quick clean of fairing, but never all over the whole bike.
