Summer is likely when your ride gets the most use, and that means you'll get it dirty faster, which in turn means you'll have to clean your bike more often.
You can wash your bike with some regular car wash supplies, but personally, I prefer to get something that's formulated specifically for motorcycles.
This Meguiar's Motorcycle EZ Clean will keep your bike looking good. I still think its a good idea to give your bike a thorough washing every once in a while, but this spray works well between washes to keep you bike looking fresh.
Its formula won't strip wax and is designed to softly clean your bike. It can be used just about anywhere on the bike. At about $8 you can't complain about price either. If you're looking for something good and don't know where to start, this is a solid choice
