Our Opinions

Motorcycles seem to attract more bugs and road grime than any other vehicle.  Bug residue should be removed as quickly as possible to prevent paint damage.  Some bug residue can be very caustic — the so-called “Love Bugs” in Florida can cause extreme paint damage and erosion right down to the surface of the metal in a very short time.Using a high-quality wax or polish can help maintain a slippery surface and can also help prevent paint damage.

We’ve found that Meguiar’s “Gold Class” brand cleaners and waxes usually work better than many of their mass-market competition.  The Bug and Tar remover works well if the instructions are followed.  Our opinion is that the product works better than other types of bug and tar removers we’ve tried, and it works better than non-dedicated bug removers, such as Glass Plus.

This product is readily available at a discount in most auto parts stores and other retailers.
