We thought you might like to see a few of our pictures from the trip to WOTS.
We really enjoyed seeing our friends.

What do you use to get all those bugs off the bike?

We have the love bugs problem here and I'm not sure what to use for it.

Thanks

Take a large towel or bath sheet, and soak it in water. Then take it out to your bike, drape it over the windsheild and nose... and let it sit out in the sunshine for a few hours, or overnight even.

When you come back to it after a few hours... the moisture from the towel will have soaked into the bugs, and that makes them much easier to clean off.

I took an old flat bed sheet and soaked it in hot water. I then form fitted the hot, wet sheet over the entire front of the bike. I used my hands to mold the wet sheet over the mirrors, fenders, windshield, nose, and headlights. I waited about 5 minutes, then slowly poured another bucket of hot water over the sheet. After another 10 minutes, I pulled the sheet off the bike and 90% of the bugs were gone and what remained, I was able to wipe off with a wet towel and hot water. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Hey, Mr. KokochaK,

From the kitchen:

Reynold's plastic wrap, . . . the clear stuff that stretches and clings

Pam, . . . the cooking stuff that prevents sticking

Have a good day, Sir!! :D

That reminds me of the time I was riding my '92 Nighthawk 750 on highway 166 in California near New Cuyama and ran into a swarm of grasshoppers (locusts?).

Them damn things HURT when you hit them at 70 mph! And I didn't have a windshield.

I was still finding bug parts in nooks & crannies a year later! :lol:
