A lot of things get lost in translation as they get to the other side of the pond

Such as - Can I bum a fag  :027: 

as in the UK = Can I have a cigarette  :028:

I believe it means something entirely different in the US  :138:

Thanks for the transition. Yes, completely different.

I usually use water and a plain car shampoo from the Italian brand Arexons..

Recently I went out for a rainy weekend in Tuscany. Roads were full of salt and after two washes I still see spots where there is white stuff!

What do you use to get rid of that?

Yesterday I covered my bike with Acf 50 spraying it and passing it all over using a rag. There are still remote spots that I can't reach.
When I lived in Dublin, Ireland there was a guy with all the tools necessary to spray your bike all over, best money spent! In Rome, Italy I can't find anyone doing that detailing works..

How is the S100 detergent gel that is sold on Amazon or Louis?

Any recommendations?

I started this thread because I thought there was a good soapy was available on the market...I'm saying this because up to now I have faithfully used MucOff which is generally a very good product, providing the instructions are followed, which brings me to your question....MucOff should be applied after the bike has been thoroughly rinsed first and should not be left on the surfaces for too long. Obviously it should be lathered and then removed by  thoroughly rinsing afterwards...After which I always use a Chamois Leather to wipe the bike dry........So with these thoughts in mind maybe you could rinse first, then thoroughly wash and then rinse carefully afterwards...maybe this will help to alleviate the white residue that you are currently experiencing

I have heard of and seen examples of the guy with the soapy wash and it looks to be very good, but I would be worried about too much soapy suds around the instruments and switchgear

Hope that helps  :002: 

Have you seen this    :question:

I wish we would have that color scheme here in the USA.  Stuck with only black for the past 2 model years. I think they would sell more here if they offered a few color options like that one.
