As most of you know, I live in Florida where the sun can be brutal. You may also recall I got married in March of 2009 which required a move on my part. I went from having a covered carport for Black Betty to leaving her out in the sun. Anyway it took my about five months to get a shed built (16X24) to get her outta the weather. Well the other day I noticed on the leading edge of my inner fairing in the area of both grips, a slight graying of the material. This is happening on both sides of the fairing right at the apex of the "wing" portion. If I was riding, I would be able to touch the area by extending my fingers. The graying is nothing too severe just a slight change in the color. It was enough to bother me so I hit it with some "Mothers Back to Black". This didn't really make much difference. I got to thinking about my days in the Marine Corps and grabbed some black boot polish. I started rubbing it into the faded portion and, after about five treatments I couldn't see the faded spots anymore. Amazing. I rubbed it in then buffed it out with a microfiber cloth, made a huge difference. I now wonder if I can "spit shine" the inner fairing and avoid the cost of painting it. HEHE. I tell you it is indeed the simple things in life that work. Between boot polish and Pledge I have a complete detail kit for my bike. Wanted to share this with you guys, perhaps someone can use it. Ride safe.
