Wow, such unethical conduct would seem to be cause for revocation of moderator status.

RE: For Winter Riders
I had the bike in storage last winter but not this year - our seasons are changing and up here in the frozen north of the UK there were a lot of mild days when i could have gone for a ride - bought a scarf last week and brought out the winter gloves.

Does seem like a meaningless reason to edit or delete a post.

I read my previous post today and I am a bit embarrassed. An ill-considered response... Sorry ferret for requiring you to replace my bad word. Sad

I wash my bikes with Honda cleaner and a light hose. Works like a charm, often.

RE: For Winter Riders
Well, watching the video reminded me of the reason I didn't ride Harleys for the first 28 years of my riding career. Then I recognized that it was silly to NOT do so because of the stereotype of the H-D crowd (I know a few genuinely intelligent guys who ride H-Ds, and a whole bunch of genuinely nice guys who do).

Hafta say, I've ridden BMWs since 1986 and know lots of those (BMW) guys, and there's pretty much no way any of them would try this . . .

My Harleys cost WAY too much to try such nonsense!

I ride a Harley and I wouldn't do this...

But in reality who is he hurting? Looks like he is having fun and everyone is laughing - it's his bike and life, who am I to judge?

HD riders do not have the market cornered on silly bike washing techniques.

your all missing the point .
it was his 1st bath of the year and they were asking if he really wanted to do this !

The best part about growing up in Florida is i didn't have to move here when i got old.
