just thought i'd share...

i don't know if this has ever been discussed, but i've been in many conversations about which product best removes shoe marks on pipes...i've heard many methods, and most of them work to some extent...i used to be a WD-40, time, patients, and elbow grease type of guy...but, today by accident, i found IMHO the best thing i've tried so far...i was out of WD, and was searching my dwindling supply of cleaners for anyhting that i could use...found an old can of "never-dull" on the shelf and decided to give it a shot...with a little bit of gentle scrubbing, it removed the small shoe mark with no problems ...very quickly, i might add...what works good for you guys?

Little Tree makes goo gone. Little bottle and I used it on the yosh last year when Vic melted his tennis shoe (punishment for making him ride bitch) Worked really well.

cool thread. I need to remove some melted plastic off the warrior pipe, or whatever those JR Ballistic pants are made out of.

I now remember to push the bike out of the garage BEFORE firing up the bike.
The thing is a boat compared to a sportbike, if I don't have my legs up close to the bike I can't get the leverage I need to push the bike up the slight incline behind my house.
