Hey Eddie (transam86), what do you use?
In case you don't know, Eddie always has the cleanest scoot around.

I carry a can of honda spray wax/cleaner and windshield cleaner polish on the scoot and bike. With old tee shirts or microfiber cloths.
in the winter between sitting on the scoot and bike mumbling VROOM VROOM. I use other products (numerous) I like ones with carnuba wax. I also tried something with nano wax in it, last winter Id detailed the spokes on my VTX. let's jsut say THAT will never happen again.
MaxB (who HATES cleaning and waxing during riding season.)
P.S. I do do a quick wipe when the dust builds up. By waxing the 2 wheelers it guarantees that i will get caught in the rain within 2 days.

I just bought a new 2009 Silverwing. Sold my Harlet Street Glide. Used S-100 on everything. Easy on and slick as a whistle. Helps keep bugs at bay too.

the way i clean my windscreen is too take a bath towel and soak it with hot water and a little dish soap. before i start cleaning the bike i put it on the windscreen and pat it down so it is in close contact after about 3-5 minutes i take it off and gently wash it off with my washing mitt and all the bugs come off. i prefer standard carnuba wax cause it comes off after a few washings and then i can just reapply it so i dont get a build up. i dont wax the windscreen cause i dont want it to be shiny ,but i did see a write up about using the same type of product on it as is used on airplane windscreens. i havent tried it so idk. pledge does seem to work kinda nice and it smellls good.
