    Question Cleaning the SHO??

    Any suggestions on a good and easy way to keep the SHO clean and repel waterspots? Or a quick waxer/cleaner to spray on/wipe-off after riding? I know that's probably a dumb question, but just curious what other people were doing to keep their bikes looking clean and "sparkling".

    bring along the absorber wet/dry towel, dry at the lake before bring it home, to prevent sun heat buit up the spot.

    Use a polymer wax..no carnauba..it does not hold up well to salt and hard water. The polymer will put a micro jacketing on your paint and it holds up very well to the extremes. After waxing spray the Aerospace 303 over your entire ski and wipe off excess. It's the best on the market and is good for paint, vinyl, mats and plexi..you will find that the hard water is not able to stick to the paint and washes off very nice. Aerospace does not leave a film but has great UV properties. Another thing, if you use it on your truck after washing(you can spray it on your glass and trim/lpaint at the same time) it repels dirt and you go longer in between washes. Be sure to wip excess off the windows though and buff it clean. It is a black skis best friend!
