Great windshield tip courtosy of Jeff (oldwrench1960)
Written by revconprince on 7/3/2012 at 04:24 am

I just put the t-shirt on the windshield before I ride. After the ride I take
off and no bugs.

here including "wipe one direction, preferably vertically". Plexus seems like a
lanolin that doesn't evaporate until you start wiping it off. Softens the bugs
so they come off easily. Turn the cloth often!

about an hour or so.) When you return the bugs simply dab off. No rubbing, no

easy that I am going to continue that practice. Jeff finishes with Novus 1. I
will finish with Plexus until my can runs out and then likely make the switch to
Novus 1 as well.
