After I bought my Wing, I had to trailer it home and it was a three hour journey in the rain. Needless to say it was a mess. Washing the Wing was like washing a friggin bus. Lots of surface area. I also polished the wheels to keep them from staining. May not be a problem on the Wing but it was on the Rocket. Funny thing is after polishing the rear wheel, I stepped back to admire it and you can't hardly see it. I'll get used to it, but it's alot different from cleaning my last bike which I just thought was a chore to wash. But once cleaned up, she sure is purdy.
