Why Do People With Black Bikes...

...never clean them? And don't say you do because all the ones I've ever seen are filthy. People with matt black are the worst, they look like they've used them to tow a plough.

You might think no-one notices because black hides the gunge, but we do, oh yes we do. So stop wasting time on internet forums and get out there with a bucket of soapy water and a sponge.
 
Stop looking at my black bike.

Because we are too busy riding them !

And mine is usually very clean but I have been tardy lately.

Cracking a solo.
If it's anything like mine then it didn't actually start life as a black bike :blush:

My Kettwiesel is dark Grey and has never been washed. I'll get round to it after I clean the QNT, the Trail doesn't need it yet as it's only 4 years old!
 

I like Skol

I don't think so, sonny!....

I bet it hasn't seen any soapy water in at least 3 years. I pointed a garden hose at it, maybe last summer or the one before, after a particularly wet, gritty run along the TPT.
And I'll tell you a secret, it doesn't make it any slower or less reliable than if it were kept sparkling clean. It is still perfectly well maintained. :okay:
