    Anyone else thinks it is the perfect time to give a quick spit shine on the bike when there is a nice layer of nature's dew on it ... relaxing time included free of charge

    Definitely, but NE winds kick-up so much dust so our dew is "dewrt" so I always have to wash/rinse first...

    I live on an island in Florida. For the past 2 weeks we've had a nor'easter and it deposits saltwater on anything outside. I don't have a garage. I refuse to wash my bike everyday. Sure I have some rust. Next month when I wash it, I put CLR on the rust and most of it is gone. Resale value? not gonna sell it, I'm keeping it till I die.

    With the salt air we have...why wipe it down?

    When on a road trip and the windshield is totally bug splatted and there is no way of getting it clean, wait until morning when it is soaked in dew, it will wipe off beautifully.
