I have just washed him down , using warm water and the minimum of detergent, using a soft cloth for the paint surfaces , and a soft brush for the spokes
and engine, even so, there are lots of bits that get missed because of access difficulties .
Please has anyone any advice on the best ways, and means, of doing this job?

I wash mine like its a dirt bike...
Get it wet with the hose, spray foamy car wash soap on it until its completely soapy, use a foam mitt thinngy or soft towel to scrub the parts you can get to then rinse it off with the pressure washer. To avoid water spots I blow all the water off it until its completely dry with a leaf blower.
All my good ideas are stolen lol, guys I raced bikes with thought me this method, its how dealers detail bikes.

Cruiser guys get the tooth brush out and scrub everything, im just not into that. Mine gets filthy riding to work and gets a bath every weekend, it only takes me about 20 minutes.

Amazing procedure here. You must be very keen and good in taking care of your machine. The problem with me is the time and I have to get someone else doing it on my behalf.
