Pre-listing wash? When you puttin' it up? The cleanest they'll ever be, is when you put it up for sale, be it house or bike.

Looks nice.
Thanks ,got good news from Dr.s....so I’m keeping it...I don't know that I really ever intended to let it go...lol...not worth that much and I dont need the money....

Wow, even nicer... last i heard you said you were selling, otherwise i wouldn't have said that, about a week ago as i recall.
Just ride when you feel up to it and take it easy.

I say the same to myself, but today i did not take it easy...lol I rode like an escaped felon 😁 I must have past 15 or 20 cars like they were standing still.

If you're energetic, I'll put a big steak on if you drop by and do kine too.

Seriously though, looks great Tenn. Ride it safely, enjoy every second.

Went for a ride this afternoon, stopped at a bar, some live music was playing, it was a cloudy, not supposed to rain, but it did very lite for a little while just enough to dirty my bike, It looks like I'll be washing and cleaning my bike also tomorrow.

Your bike looks great. Please tell me the type of cleaning agents you like to use. I am new to this group as I just purchased an 04, 1800N.
I use regular car wash soap and honda polish...I wash the bike from the tank down..I try to keep water off the electronics.....in between cleanings...I use a swiffer duster ...u should go to intriductions and post and start your own thread on bike cleaning as their are guys on here a lot more OCD than me...good luck with the Beast 1800N....

Y'all want to clean mine next? It's been neglected. I ride it more often than I drive my car. (unless it rains)
So I don't have the downtime to clean her. Especially the aluminum wheels.
Come one down to TX, I got beer! :)

Not that this is u...but anytime I see somebody out on a dirty bike....I envy the chit out of them ,cause their riding and not cleaning ...Ive seen some nasty ass beaters that I know mechanically would get u to Cali and back...lol..
as for the beer ...I’m one of those guys that use to make the run down for Coors...until I got a taste of LoneStar...
