Need my bike cleaned!

OK guys where can i take my bike to get a good detail job? With my work schedule i just dont have the time to do this myself. I live in Angleton so hopefully something close. If it has to be Houston id prefer something on the south side.

Lol! Thats why i had to detail my bike for 3 hours the other day. I cleaned all the dirty rain drops off the inside of the fairings and cleaned it all to perfection. Then lubed the chain and waxed that bad boy... Oh, she looks better than the day i bought her now!

What a trip.


I just detailed my bike. I rode it to work the last 2 weeks so it was due a good one.
It took me nearly an hour 1/2 to finish it..

I feel you man. I got caught in a bit of hard rain the other day and the bike got all nasty. I completely detailed it though from the ground up. I felt so much better after it was done!

I didnt ride it the last 2 days but took it out today to work.
I noticed rust on the disks... I know what caused it but what do you use to eliminate the rust.
I had the bike outside under a bike cover so obviously it will start coming back in! lol

Maybe an sos pad or something but only scrub lightly. I cleaned mine fast enough that mine didnt get it but its common anytime the bike is in the rain i hear.

Just ride it more - the rust that comes on fast goes away fast with just a few braking moments.

Yes it would be.

And thats true if it is on the braking part of the rotor itself but i think he means it is off that part of the rotor.
