Default highly recommended

It's not often I get to praise a product but - Jofswaxproducts - bike polish is absolutely fecking amazing. and it protects against sun damage and dirt n stuff.

It aint cheap but a little goes a long way and its easy to use with no smears etc. Oh yeah above is for ebay of course

According to the ad, its for everything, Taff.

Not that I shall be using any. Nowt wrong with a wipe with a damp cloth and a good buffing with a dry one, saves a fortune in cleaning products.

my beesa was a ****ty mess when i bought it, it looked like it hadnt been washed in the 47 years since it left the factory. ive owned it now for 7 years, and the closest ive come is wiping it down with wd 40 once or twice. ive never gone so far as to introduce soap or polish into the bike care ritual.
the katana had a nice thick coat of satin black. when it got really bad, it got another coat, simple and effective!!

All very well, but i see a man's bike as a reflection of that man, and if it's a piece of shít, then so is he. If the man looks like he's just crawled out a pond, but his bike looks like he knows how to keep it on the road, and, god forbid, looking half decent, then he gives a fúck.
Dont polish mine much since i blacked it all up, but aways do me tank cos i'm proud of me paint, rest dont need it, good thorough wash with TripleWax, give it a blast, and wipe it down, sparkles like a good 'un. If going someplace special i polish me brass and copper bits up, this nonsense about chrome, of which i ain't got much, is nonsense, chrome is wash'n'go stuff if you dont let it fester.

still swear by "BLUE JOB" takes a bit of elbow grease but gets that goldey coulor of them exhausts a treat, paint work and metal comes up really good.
bit like cherrys stuff though, expensive but goes a hll of a long way.

whilst my bike looks like a tatty peice of old crap, its well serviced and regularly checked, and has some serious mods to help it stay reliable, modern electronic ignition and oil filtration are there, as is a gel battery hidden in the case of an old lucas one, electronic voltage regulation and led lighting with a halogen on the front. its motor has been rebuilt and built properly by myself, and its utterly reliable.


i dont know if my beesa is a reflection of me, its a bit scruffy and worn at the edges, but its original and what you see is what you get, theres nothing false or plastic on it, no trim hiding anything unpleasant, but its not something that many people would like, its low tech and low performance, but, despite this, and its great age, it always starts and always gets me where i want to go. whether thats a reflection of me, only those who really know me could tell you.

Bit of a generalisation there Taff! I dont clean my FJ cos its a rat, all my bikes are well maintained but I like to give the impression they are ****, the old FJ has surprised the **** out of many a youngster.

Oh to be happy to be guided by such certainties...

In my exprience no matter how shiny or well maintauned a persons bike/car/shoes are doesn't stop them being a tosspot.

And some scruffy herberts with houses full of junk and beaten up motorcycles are those you could trust your life to.

and vice versa.

I've only had to offer violence to two people in my life. one made immaculate model soldiers, the other owned a mint 1974 Triumph Trident and kept it pristine. Both were unutterable wankers. So it goes...

Think yourself lucky it kept remotely on topic and didn't degenerate into a mish mash of knob gags and random insults.

I can highly recommend these ....




For those of you that didn't read about the trip a mate an' myself made last year. We took these with us, I bought them 'cos I thought it was a good idea.

Here's the review I put on their site ....


Last year my mate Peter and myself took a trip to the Baltics on a couple of bikes. We travelled through Denmark, Sweden, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Germany before heading home via Holland. I covered 3150 miles in 17 days, Peter covered a few hundred more coming from Scotland.
Our V2 Sponges were a godsend with the amount of bugs, dust and general roadcrap we encountered along the way. Along with a hydraulic stand for my bikes that I bought for my workshop the V2 Sponge has to be the best bit of bike kit that I have bought in 25 years of riding.
We used them regularly on each day's riding and it really made a difference. When we were staying with a bike club in Kaunas, Lithuania we showed them the sponge and they were impressed at how well it worked. After filtering for 15 miles thru stopped traffic on the E30 in Germany we met up with a bunch of other bikers at the head of the queue waiting for a crashed vehicle to be removed form the autobahn, and whilst waiting we handed round our sponges whilst one of the other guys there lent out his chain lube to anyone that needed it.
Throughout the trip and since for another 3000 miles the V2 Sponge has worked well and, in it's bag, stayed wet even though we spent most of our days riding in 35 degree or more weather. Now on it's last legs I am ordering a couple more and come Christmas I'll be buying them as gifts for a good few biking mates - 'cos I'm cheap like that.
It's a simple piece of kit that works, and far exceeds a rating of GOOD in my book. I don't go anywhere on my bike without it.

STEViE - One Bloke One Mandolin www.stevie.me.uk

A diary of our trip with many photos, entitled 'To Hel and Back', has appeared in the April, May, June and July issues of Back Street Heroes custom bike magazine this year (2007)
