Throw it in the dryer on Air Fluff for a while.



It worked for my clothes when I came home from a smoky bar.

Just give it time. Or wear a full-face helmet and you won't notice.

I think you should keep it. Adds character.

Remove the gas cap, then have a friend push the motorcycle forward. Have another friend push a new motorcycle under the gas cap, then screw it back on and go for a ride. Problem solved.

Tell your friends it was aged in a charred oak barrel and how smooth it is.

Default Goop

Wash the bike and let throughly dry.



Purchase some Goop hand cleaner ($1.00 a tub) at Wal Mart and rub all washable parts with it.



Then rinse bike and wash with normal motorcycle or automotive detergent.

I've gotten used to my "smoked" wind screen.

I borrowed an anorak once for a trip to the backcountry. When I returned it I apologized for the smell. A week later the owner thanked me for the wonderful, smoky aroma-- she actually loved that nice campfire smell. Enjoy it. Unless your bike smells like zoopers, or burning hair. Seriously. How can your bike smell? Just washi it and ride it and it should air out just fine.

Take it to the car wash and blast it with that pink foaming soap, that stuff smells strong enough to knock the flies off a sh*t wagon, then ride it around in the rain to get a nice even coating of road crud on there. No one will notice after that.
