Just ordered this off of Amazon the other day. It's a wax that was suggested to me from a custom Bagger shop. For $23 it comes with the wax, application pads and some microfiber cloths to whipe off the wax once it drys. Haven't used it yet but this place swears by it and their bikes are immaculate. Thought I'd share in case anyone is looking for a new wax product

I've been using it for a couple of years. Very good stuff. A friend told me about it. The Auto Parts Stores all have it. I was told that if you leave it on overnight and then wipe off it works even better.

As do I between waxing. Wipe front end down after every ride with the detailer. Takes bugs right off!

I recently started using Meguiars car wash product on my truck that waxes as well. After the storm came through last week my wife asked me if I went and had the truck washed. I had not as the rains cleaned it up pretty well with the Meguiars on it.

I use all kinda stuff on my vehicles, mostly Meguires. Each company has a couple of lines or grades of product. I think apples to apples it would be really hard to see the difference. Some may be easier to use than others. If you ask a dozen people which is the best you'll probably get a dozen diff. answers. I like the "Mirror Glaze" professional series. Seems I always at some point go back to Gold Class wax. The trick is use a good polish, (more coats the better), before waxing. This is just my opinion. I'm sure every body else has their preference and techniques.

Wax is wax...still using Blue Coral from the still going hot rod days...:nod...although there's quite a difference between waxing a B-body Mopar and a Softail springer with no bags or windshield...:know

The wash is super important. Make sure you don't wax over water spots. I don't care for normal washes but for detailing days for my bike and black Jeep I will do a quick final rinse out of direct sunlight with a gallon or 2 of distilled water, it doesn't have the calcium so it doesn't leave the water spots. If you have water spots or small blemished consider a polish / orbital buffer first. The polish is different than wax and is mildly abrasive. If you already have a good finish then jump to the wax. If I am spending time and really detailing her, I will try to get 2-3 coats on and I can tell it helps because the water beads longer. Plus I need protection from grimey toddler fingers.

Plus there are many threads here about the wash and wax that I have learned from. Happy cleaning!

Crap ! The grease, road grime and oil runoff protects them better than wax.
