Huh?  ???   I'm not familiar with that...is that something new?

Nah.  It is that thing, like I did today, that gets rid of all the grime and bugs and crap and replaces it with shine and pride!  I even "waxed" it (of course it is not wax, how primitive; but saying "polished" sounds strange) which helps protect it and makes it easier to keep clean.  It also gives me a chance to check everything out and make sure nothing is loose, missing, damaged, whatever.  And clean mirrors and dash makes it more convenient and safe to use, too.

Interestingly, I was missing a bolt that holds the top cover on.  Somehow I must have forgotten to put it back in when I did that "bleeding" of the clutch fluid.  It is just gone.  I scrounged around and found two that were from the rack before I added the helmet locks (which came with longer ones).  It was the right thread and head, but too long, so I just used a tall washer.  Oops.... I said "wash" again..........   :o

But don't the encrusted bugs and grime sort of cement everthing to the bike so you don't have to worry about things getting loose and flying off? As for damage I always thought the crusty exterior sort of provided a level of impact absorption. I know when new bugs hit the old encrusted bugs that instead of sticking  they just bounce away. Different strokes I guess. Your way sounds like a lot of work. ;D
