Thanks guys. My wing could use some cleaning. I ride daily and the weather here in western Washington is wet messy.

I'll admit, I actually bought two bottles of that stuff - one of them got sent to MikeB, the other I'm keeping for myself. :) I'm going to do my bike, as well as my truck with it. The "lasts 5 years" part appeals to me - I hate waxing! :)

Lasts 5 years appeals to me as well. I have to confess that I have never used car wax on my motorcycle. I have used Captain Richard's Best http://www.captainrichardsbest.com/welcome.htm and Honda Spray Polish. Both are really good products. This new stuff might be better than what I have been using. I'll keep you posted.

hope i don't bore anybody , but i'll tell ya a story about wax , i was at a bike swap and show and there was this young pretty women there selling a wax called royal blue , she was showing it taking fresh rattle can paint off a fender with it , i said ya sure but bought 2 bottles of it for 20 bucks , 1 day i had 1 of them dumb arse moments , i had a can of spray glue and a can of lexas cleaner sitting along side my tool box , by the way , i removed that spray glue right out of that area , any woo i grabbed that can of spray glue by mistake and sprayed that crap all over my winshield , still did'nt no tell i grabbed my cloth to clean my beautyful windshied with a timber wolf etched in it , and the cloth stopped cold when i went to wipe the shield clean , i could'nt beleave what i did , my neightbor was there and he said you stepped in it big time this time , i said oh no , ready to bang head into wall , but i remebered that pretty young gal and her demo with that wax , i grabbed it and went to work on my shield , and i reemoved all that glue off my shield and it looked as good as it did befor my brain drain happened , i waxed last year with royal blue , and then use lemon pledge the rest of the season , long story , but that royal blue is some good stuff

Yes, car wax does a pretty good job of removing glue residue from just about any smooth surface. I have used a few different types of car wax to remove bumper sticker residue very effectively.

I first discovered that the wax worked one summer in 1972 when I was trying to remove residue from a windshield from a 1970 Honda CB450 that I had acquired. I tried all kinds of stuff, including WD40 but nothing worked very well or quick enough to suit me. I had a can of KIT car wax handy so I tired it. It Worked like a charm.

Can't say that I have ever tried to use spray glue as a windshield polish though. You got me beat there.
