▪ wBW Motorcycle Polish Reviews


There are many different types of polishes and cleaners that are appropriate for use on motorcycles.

Hawg-Wash, a division of Classic Motoring Accessories, sells automotive and motorcycle care products to both consumers and professional detailers.

They have a manufacturing division that produces the Blackfire brand of car care products, Eimann Fabrik professional detailing products, and Sonus and Pinnacle car care products.

They sent a selection of motorcycle care products for review. I specifically wanted to get a couple of the more unique or interesting products that are either new to the U.S. market or that are out of the ordinary in addition to some of the basic items that many motorcyclists use.

Now, it's just about impossible to do an empirical and objective test with data on these type of products. I took some photos, but they definitely do not do justice to the before/after results.

So you'll have to take the webBikeWorld subjective judgment on this -- and remember, your mileage may vary!

One more thing -- I have to confess that I'm the complete opposite of the "rat bike" owner -- I'm one of those fussy motorcycle owners who prefer having their bikes look like they just rolled off the showroom floor.

But, I'd rather be riding, wrenching or admiring (in that order) then spending a lot of time sweating and rubbing various concoctions on my bike to keep it clean.  

So I have a built-in bias (sucker?) for products that have key words like "instant", "do it all", "multi-purpose", "easy", etc. It seems that with 21st century technology there just has to be the ultimate degreaser/cleaner/polisher/protector that works instantly and with no elbow grease on metal, plastic, rubber, paint, glass, windscreens, etc.

All of these products can be characterized by one of those keywords, with the exception of Wenol. It still takes some good old-fashioned elbow grease to polish metal!   But read on, and enjoy -- we think you'll find something in this review that can help you minimize the amount of time you spend cleaning your bike so that you can maximize the time spent riding it!
