I have not used it myself, but have a Hardly buddie that does, swears by it. Seems there is a small quirk bout these Hardly guys for whatever reason.:rolleyes:

No doubt a good product, but I think it depends how dirty the bike is to start with. I have tried many, all fair to great, but none will spray on, rinse off and have a showroom bike, like my ol friend says.

The only way I ever got a super clean and shiney bike was to invest some (a lot) elbow grease:eek: Ride Safe:cool:

I've never used one product to clean and shine. I wash, wax, and now that I'm on a cruiser polish chrome. :)

TenTwelve, in answer to your ? I think maybe start with primer gray and go from there. I sort of figger black with the little sparkles that shine in the sun, with lots of crome:D Black and crome:cool:

Have fun, Ride Safe:cool:

I had a Harley guy tell me about it today. He too swears by it. I wash dry and polish the old fashion way and I enjoy doing it. He is going to let me try it this week, I'll keep you posted.

Tried bike bright today on my bike. My bike was filthy I haven't cleaned it in 2 weeks and rode it 200 miles yesterday. I washed it with a spray on soap that is like bike bright, the HD guy gave me had to wash it with regular soap. The spray on polish is just as much work as the regular chrome polish. It's just waiting to let it sit then buff. I lime my turtle wax chrome polish better.

I have a can of Moto-Pro spray on and wipe off. Look, the product is good and for a quick job it does the trick. I have used it on occasion but I am not really iinto it. And yeah a Harley buddy gave it to me. I still lie the was and shine of the chrome.

By far and away my cleaner of choice is Spray Nine. Degreses very well, yet not harsh on painted surfaces. Yes, of course you have to polish and shine after a wash. It wouldn't be a proper wash without the task, besides you get up close and personal with your ride, which can prevent other future issues down the road. :cool:

We use Lucas Slick Mist. It's a "speed wax" but also works great at getting dried bug splatter off windscreen.
