It has been has been way too long since I gave my motorcycle, 2006 Yamaha XT225, a wash and wax (September 17, 2018).  This summer was really hot with very little rain.  Didn’t want to waste the water.  Every year before the Cape Breton Bike Rally I would give it a good wash/wax.  Not this year.  There is about a week left in September.  So time is time is getting close to having to put it way for the year.  Made it to about two weeks into October last year.  Well see what this year brings.

We are into the second week of October (2017).  So time is running out on days I have to ride my motorcycle, a 2006 Yamaha XT225.  Was my day off and the weather wasn’t too bad, around 13°C.  Decided it to give my bike one last wash and wax for the year.  Am hoping to get the the end of October before it gets too cold to  ride.  Time will tell.

Has been far too long since I gave my motorcycle a 2006 Yamaha XT225 a wash and wax.  The weather has been super nice.  All so got home early from work (Aug 3, 2017).  It was the right time to do it.  The 2017 Cape Breton Rally is this weekend.  It will be nice and shinny when I got check out the events.

2006-xt225-usa-dpbmc-3.jpgHas been may months since I have giving my motorcycle, Yamaha XT225, a wash and wax.   Today (September 16, 2016) the weather was really nice.  So far this month the all around weather as been super great.  Not sure how much long that will last.  Hoping to the end of October before I have to put it was for the year.  This might be the last time I get clean it up.

2006-xt225-usa-dpbmc-3.jpgThe weather was super nice today (September 29, 2015) around 26°C.  Was off work as well so had to take advantage and wash my Yamaha XT225.   Haven’t washed it since June.  Mind you it wasn’t too dirty.  Didn’t get stuck in any big rain storms this year (so far).  All so decided  it was time for a wash because yesterday getting ready to leave work seen that a bird had diarrhea all over the seat.  At first It looked like someone spilt coffee.   Was pretty gross.  Got some handy wipes from work.  Which got most of it off.  Not sure how long this nice weather will last.  But hoping until the end of October.  However think that is wishful thinking.   If I could ride my motorcycle all year I would.

2006-xt225-usa-dpbmc-3.jpgHas been far to long since I have my Yamaha XT225 a good wash and wax.  Think the last time was in October  2014.  The weather was very nice today (June 28, 2015) and the bugs were not bad.  Well they found me when I was all most finished.  Have about about 514km so far this year.  That is mostly going back and forth to work.

2006-xt225-usa-dpbmc-3.jpgThe weather was supper nice today (Oct 5, 2014) so I gave my Yamaha XT225 a much need wash and wax.  Have not washed the motorcycle since July.  Had to take this opportunity of the nice weather.  Think this might be the last time I will be able to wash the bike before it is time to put it way for the winter.  I goal is to try and make it to November before I put it a way.  Time will tell.

2006-xt225-usa-dpbmc-3.jpgIt has been far too long since I gave my Yamaha XT225 a wash and wax.  So the other day (July 24, 2014) that’s what I did.  Back in late June made a post talking about the small tear in the seam of the seat.  Tried hot glue which didn’t work.  So after the motorcycle was washed decided that I should sew it back together.  You can see the before and after below (the last two pictures).  As you can tell, I am not very good at it.  But think it is a lot better than it was.

2006-xt225-usa-dpbmc-3.jpgIt was nice day out so decided to give my Yamaha XT225 a wash and wax.  Has been far to long since the last time I done this.  The motorcycle was getting pretty dirty.  All so 2013 Cape Breton Bikefest is this up coming weekend, August 2nd to 5th.  Want it to be some what clean just in case some takes a picture, lol.   After that was all finished I forgot I was going to buy myself a better kind of wax this year.  Since the stuff I have is more of a polish.  Must remember to get some for next time.

Has been over a month since I have my Yamaha XT225 motorcycle a wash and wax.  Was off today plus the weather was nice so it was a good day.  Going to looking into trying a different soap the next time I wash it.  Haven’t been to happy with the results I have had the last few times.  After the bike starts to dry I find it leaves spots.  Which makes it still look dirty.  Also going to look into trying a different wax.  The one I have now is more of a polish.  Then again all that might have to wait till next year.  This might be the last time I get a change to wash it.
