Just waxed the bike.

I was just looking at my bike and noticed that a little section of it was getting dull. Sort of like it was starting to oxidize. It was dull and had a few surface scratches on it. So i went down to the store and bought some turtle wax products. i got, Turtle wax color back, Turtle wax Polishing compound, and turtle wax express shine spray. I'd say it came out real well. What do you use to keep your bike shiny?

that looks really nice. I have yet to wax my bike. The previous owner laid it down on one side, so it's all scraped up in a couple areas, and he also took off the flame decals on my '07 and didn't do a good job at finishing so you can faintly see the outlines of the decals.

If I end up painting the side with the scuffs, I'll definitely wax the whole thing and you've just shown me what I need. Thanks!

No problem man, i'm all new to this so i'm slowly learning. You can always replace the plastics on the bike no? But then again if the scrapes aren't so bad and you can live with them you can save yourself a little money.

yeah I can replace them as well. I've been looking around for the right parts in the right color. They're hard to find, and when I do stumble upon them, my bank account has no room to spare!
