Cleaning bugs from your gear?

So im pretty sure i have put a dent in the local insect population

I typically use a mild soap and warm water to clean my leather's

Just curious what other use? I heard once that equal parts vinegar, water and rubbing alcohol works well

I just use a damp cloth...as long as you clean them up right after your ride the goo should just wipe right off.

Saddle soap for cleaning and mink oil for conditioning.

Since I use a textile jacket, when it gets bad enough, I just chuck it into the washer along with the helmet liner.
I also try not to ride during love bug seasons (May and September).
Nasty, smelly little bastards they are.

Gotta love those love bugs

Use Oxyclean on the white fabric if you have any....works great!

The Mr. Clean magic erasers work well too. Just be careful on leathers because if you scrub too vigorously, the color will start to come off on the eraser.

It also works wonders to clean white leather stuff. Makes it look brand new.




I'm always right.
