Hey everyone, I'll start by saying that I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this, so move me if it isn't! Anyway, what I'm here to humbly request is some in-depth stories/discussions/incidences of 'end-of-the-ride' cleanups for a story I'm writing. Basically my character is a motorcyclist, as i'm pretty fond of bikes, and his pseudo obsessive compulsive cleaning of his bike makes for a later contrast in character. However, based on the fact that the old TTR250 is sitting in a shed somewhere and is in the process of being serviced I haven't had any use for my License yet and thus little experience in the matter myself. Trailing off a bit, but the bottom line is I haven't had much cleaning/repair etc. experience for a fair few years now and am looking for some specific brands/names/cleaning of parts/techniques that you guys use. If you've seen or read it, imagine American Psycho-esque descriptions: "i used the 'X' brand soap with my 'Y' cleaning cloth to 'Z' the [part]" - spare no detail. Even links to engine parts breakdowns or guides or whatever will be greatly appreciated! At this point the bike will be some form of naked bike - Duc Streetfighter, the Triumph Triples, Gladius or something. Can't say for sure, though I'm leaning the Streetfighter at the moment. As long as its black. I guess as some form of disclaimer i ought to mention that what you guys post may be directly used in the final product (please say if you're not cool with that!), though at this point I'm really just trying to get together information that i can use to write a 'scrubdown' for myself. Thanks heaps in advance! -Bonds.
