It took about 4 or 5 years to ruin the windscreen on my K1100. And I only used Windex about 1/4 of the time when I cleaned it.

Yes, that is it! Its not so bad on mc parts, but still does its damage. Im just careful cause my eyes are behind the plastic. For a real good cleaning a few times a year, I use "Brillianize" from TAP plastics

I think I've figured it out. I'm using a cleaner my girfriend gets that doesn't have alcahol or amonia in it. I was just saying Windex as a generic.

That's good, I just hate to see someone ruin their gear. BTW offroad goggles are very sensitive to the ammonia products

Holy crap that was fun! It's funny looking at the SPOT track it looks like very little riding was done, but man it was some good times. I can't wait for the next one, but I wanna relax and run sweep next time. I'll get my pics up soon...

Oh yeah, we need more guns next time!

I rode past on Saturday afternoon on my way back from Montana, but I must have missed you guys. Booo! I was actually checking your SPOT Todd and it looked like you were right around Bodie when I came through so I screwed around a bit on the dirt roads right around Bodie before I gave up. It turned out to be a challenge to make out your exact location using the iPhone to look at the shared SPOT page. I did see a couple of guys just off Bodie Rd. as I was riding out to the 395, one of the guys was on a blue 950 and I didn't catch what the other dude was riding. I waved, but at that point my ass was aching, I was low on gas and the wind was pissing me off to no end, so I just blasted past. I hope that wasn't you guys!
