Actually, I have used plexus on it, many times.    In fact, I try to clean it every time I ride, and use plexus on it after to help with the next cleaning.    It helps a little, but, not enough.

I hate this matte bodywork like you hate chrome.    I like to ride, not clean.    My gloss painted bikes don't require this much work to keep the bugs off.

I just use a microfiber cloth damped with a little distilled water, and follow it with a dry microfiber cloth.

I'm a bit confused by your comment. The Touring/Custom/Eldo all come with a heel/toe shifter from the factory. I **think** the Audace does not, but you said yours is a Touring. Did you get the bike new? If not, someone may have removed the heel portion.

In any case, glad you worked it out to your satisfaction. :thumb:

I use Original Bike Spirits spray detail on my BMW with a matte paint job. It takes bugs and grime off easily and a wax-like finish seals up the paint. It also works great on cloudy windshields.

My bikes range from 81-71 +3converts.The old bikes I really enjoy especially the Ambassador with it's tall gears + transmission that takes talent to shift,if I should break down somewhere I'm sure I can fix it on the side of the road if that should EVER happen.The old ones were made to last.I have never had to replace a seal in the drive line until(50 years of ridding) I bought my EV,never did I change out bearings in the trans /with shims. How about the clutch???? 43,000 mi. on the EV + it's clutch replacement time. I had a 82 airhead with 280,000miles pulled a camper 100,000 of it + never had clutch trouble + this is a SINGLE disk clutch  :bike-037: All in all I pre
fer a good running Convert to all of them ,they are just so much fun! Day before yesterday I took my first ever ride on a 90 Gold Wing,that was truly amazing it will do anything you ask of it.I road it to the liquor store 15mi. away,got my booze but I  had to pay for it myself----Well guess even the Gold Wings arn't perfict !!!

Installed my brand new used heel shifter on the California Touring yesterday.  (Found one used from a fellow member on this site. IMHO it is ridiculous the prices MG asks for it's aftermarket parts.)  All's right with the world, bike shifts perfect and lay out is just right for my size 12's.  I still believe a bike the size of the CV14 should come stock with the heel toe option, not a $170.00 option add on.  Now I am done with my bitching, no more until after Christmas.......

Really?   I thought you loved your Morini?

I do, but a number of factors have me wanting to move on. Primarily, lack of room to store more than two bikes and the need to generate enough funding to buy a replacement for my crusty old Eurovan.

I wonder then if it would be worth it to just use Pledge, realizing that might change the look a bit, but might provide more of a barrier.

Jay, I wonder if something like Plexus would work on that bodywork to keep it clean. It makes bugs and tar come of playing windshields really well.

That looks like a good spare seat for experimenting on.
