What do you use to wash your bike and then wax it? Thinking soap/wax as well as cloths.
On side note, when I run out of Zaino, I use Zymol.
As for washing with water.. The 1098 being my primary source of transportation, I ride in thunderstorms (monday was a flashflood which was pretty scary) rain or shine. I have to ride down about 1/2 mi of gravel/dirt/compact road for work as well. Only time I use any soap is to strip it once a year.
Honda still makes the Polish also. They did cease production for a little bit, but then started right back up. Every trip to the dealer I pick up 1-3cans regardless if I'm out or not
