As careful as I try to be washing my bike,,I seem to have the swirl marks. I always wash the paint first before any other part just so I don't have a gritty or dirty cloth on the paint. I have the copper-black colors and have noticed it on the black. Do you guys have this happen. I know there are swirl mark removers ,,but don't feel like I should have to use those removers every time. Anything you guys do while cleaning so not to get these marks? I also use a new cloth each time I wash my bike, blow it off , then wipe it with a soft cloth for the excess water.
