    Hey Kaptin, did you ever get and try your "Bug Slide" and if so was it "as advertised"?

    Thanks, "T"

    If you're talking to me, I don't use Liquid Glass....bad experience and long story behind that in another thread.

    Bugslide is GOOD STUFF, but so is Meguiar's Instant Detailer.

    For chrome though, the best stuff I've ever found is Oreck Glass & Mirror Cleaner Spray..believe it or not. It won't take off the heavy grime, boot scuffs/burns, etc (you'll need a good chrome paste polish for that), but it'll bring out clean chrome brilliance and make it "pop" like nothing else I've ever tried, and I've pretty much tried 'em all!

    Try it...you'll like it! Here's a link:

    And I will throw in, quit using cotton and use flannel. Makes a big difference.

    I like this of bringing up these older threads. Keeping them alive or putting some closure on them:old2:

    Honda spray cleaner and polish was mentioned in here. I have had excellent experiences with this product for 20+ years on every sport bike I've ever owned. I have only used the Honda spray cleaner and polish to clean my bikes. I have been using it on my Mastiff as well, and it leaves my bike looking shiny and clean and makes bug removal pretty easy as well, especially on the chrome forks. I use a microfiber towel with it. I leaves the chrome looking spotless too. I have used it on my wheels a time or two so far, and it has left the front rim with a nearly chrome-like shine. It doesn't seem to look as chrome-like on the back rim, but I suspect that is because the back one wasn't taken care of as good. So to sum it up, I use it as a quick detailer after I get home from a ride and it has worked very well for me. It is still available at the dealerships for $6-7 per can. Just bought another one about a month ago. It's been an absolutely fantastic product for me personally.

    x2 on the flannel I use it for paint too just blow off the little fibers. Works great for polishing and I use it on my polish alu after a ride just blow off excess with air compressor and wipe alu with dry flannel rag. You can get them from craft dept in walmart by the yard and it is cheap too.

    I personally have only seen it at the Honda dealer, however I have not tried to see if it's available online anywhere.
