Looking real shiny! When was the last time you cleaned it up?

Ha, never! It came off the truck dusty and all I've done is wipe it off with a soft towel during the PDI. Never seen water! It looks clean in pictures but there is a little dirt here and there.

Visited Victoria a couple time and like the city, not as crazy as other cities but sometimes that's a major plus. You probably get a lot of looks since these days you still dont see enough of retro styled bikes.

Hahaha the power of photos eh? Do you typically not wash the bikes down or do you want until you have to do chain maintenance and then get it all done?

Some guys I know keep some of those quick detailer sprays around to ensure they're able to keep the bike all the time, great idea just as long as there isn't any dirt on that could scratch the paint in the process.

I typically don't ride in conditions that warrant a bike wash afterwards... having said that, it's been super dusty recently so she's getting a bit untidy.

Also might have some ash on her with all of the forest fire smoke in our area at the moment... this was the sky on my way home tonight at about 6pm...

Hello Dave,

Your VV is looking good! I'm anxious to read about some of your CAN exploits.

There is a small group of us planning a small excursion through Banff/Jasper and points beyond next July. I've never been to those area's, my only Canada experience is out of Port Angeles on the Coho ferry to Victoria, that was 25+years ago.

Since us four guys reside in different parts of the U.S. we'll most likely pick a meet up point and go from there. Not sure what bike I'll use yet, it very well may be the Van Van.

If you have any insight or idea's, I'm all ears.

Thanks, Sam

I seen that detailers use a special duster thats very gentle on paint which you might want to use for the van van. Makes it much safer to wash after since the paint is that much more free from particles.

Seen one rider with this and it was his best investment:
