waterless wash

Anyone have a motorcycle here?
I am thinking of using Ultima
Waterless Wash for my Ninja.
Any opinions?

Had a motorcycle. Wrecked it. But! I'm unfamiliar with Ultima's Waterless Wash, but if it's anything like ONR's wash, I think it would be fine. However, I used a leaf blower to make sure to get all the interior parts dry. Along with a MF dry. And I let it sit for a while.

All in all I think you are fine, I was just a little particular for the bike and wanted to make sure it was dry.

I always clean my bikes with car wash and water. Wash it like a car only use water sparingly to get the soap off and as a mist. When done, leaf blower til you get the bulk of. On stands, start it up and let the bike warm and evaporate the areas you can't reach with the blower, while it is idling, continue blowing.
The routine becomes very basic after the first few times. Nice coat of wax, lube the already clean chain, stubborn chain lube fling off on the rims, wipe it off with wd-40 on a rag.
People say I have OCD but I just like my stuff clean.
