Tried to clean all the blue crap off the new white walls. What a PITA! It got too cold to finish so I came back in. What are you guys using? I tried some all purpose cleaner (greased lightening), hot water with some dishwashing soap, some softscrub bleach cleaner mixed with hot water in a squirt bottle, and it is starting to fade a little but damn it has never been this hard before!!!! Any idea's?

I use Bleach White, but it still takes a little elbow grease. Also, be careful not to get any on the tread.

I tried a few different things today and nothing wanted to penetrate that blue crap until I grabbed a clean rag and just put a dab of mineral spirits on it. Bam it started cutting it. I still had to use a lot of elbow grease, but at least I could see it working. I used the mineral spirits sparingly and immediately cleaned the tires with some all purpose cleaner afterwards. They are nice and white now! Crappy picture but you get the idea...

MAN you guys with your badass baggers (Deadlion, Fireman, Rphazen, Black Rain, and the list goes on and on) are absolutley killing me!!!!! Actually you guys have helped me make my decision - I need an ass kickin bagger in my life. I have done enough stripped down 'round town bikes. You guys have definitely proven that a bike can be a head turner and a comfortable open road long distance machine at the same time.

Opened the overhead door, turned her pointing to the driveway. Started the sweet thing, let her run a little bit and she was just a purring. Blew a little dust off the tank. Sat there with her watching the sleet come down. Shut her off and put her back in her spot, sat there for a few minutes thinking of the times we had and the ones we are going to have, and went back to work.
