    I just got a 2011 Streetglide and I used pledge all the time on my Heritage. Will it be OK to use it on the denim paint. I now have the white hot denim. Thanks

    The Denim types of paint have no clear coat finish, so pledge does not work the same as on your other Harleys. Denim paint will burnish over time like the fabric. When I first got my denim black Fat Bob, I found out the dealer had a special "denim paint cleaner" that works best. $8 for a pint.

    If you really want to try pledge, I suggest trying a test area to see what happens. Some reports I read said that pledge did not create a polished surface, but left a white dusty effect and it was hard to go back to the original appearance. If you try it, let us know how it works out.

    I used to spend lots of time rubbing my Harley (with polish!), but after I got the Denim Fat Bob, I found I have a little more free time.

    The MOCO bulletin says to use windex on the denim paint to clean it.
