    The gas got me too, but I would never use a power washer on my bike either!

    Ha-ha-ha, good answer. Anybody got a light...poof!
    No high pressure washer and no gasoline, I remove my saddlebags, seat and any luggage before washing. Can't believe they left out blow drying.

    1 Spraying the detergent (or whatever it was) everywhere, on discs, leather
    2 spraying the stuff in/sround electrics
    3 using a power hose (big no-no)
    4 drenching the leather
    5 wetting the electrics unnecessarily
    6 not cleaning the nooks/crannies & all the hard to get at bits incl wheels
    7 using petrol on tyres
    8 not drying properly
    9 not using Pledge

    I'm sure there's more...

    I just love the way he gives special attention to the switches on the bars amongst many other things.

    This video should have been named...How NOT to clean your bike.

    He breaks just about every rule of cleaning a bike that there is.
