    MOVED from the July 2017 POTM Post.


    I apologize for high jacking but what is the waterless motorcycle wash place? Is it a motorcycle detailed? I've never seen that before.

    The best stuff I've ever used, and it's sworn by with the detail guys, is the ONR (Optimum No Rinse).

    You can use a bucket and a microfiber mit for heavier work, or you can mix a tiny bit (like 1/3 cap) in a spray bottle and use as a waterless wash for light work. I don't use it on my cars much (just wash them) but I use it on my boat after a long lake weekend. It's unreal, some sort of polymer tech.

    Yea yea.. I know about that I was actually referring to the damn building.

    Is it a place to buy the waterless motorcycle wash or do they detail the bike for you. That's what I was trying to ask.

    Of course I know about the above products lol. I've only washed my bike once with water always use the waterless stuff.

    This is the stuff I use... Really makes it easy to wipe the bugs off.

    Walmart carries it and it's like $7-8. But it will last you forever a little goes a long way.

    Says spray and rinse but I spray and wipe off. I like that it doesn't have a wax and it just a cleaner. pH balanced so no ammonia works great on all surfaces, painted, aluminum or chrome.

    Well by looking at the size of the building, they certainly weren't selling the products out of it and I would bet the farm that its a small shed used to detail the motorcycles in. And they don't wash the bike with water, but by the seats set up outside it looks like you can wait while they do it.
