Face it, motorcycles have tons of places for water to collect and leave mineral deposits for future corrosion. The best thing you can do with your bike after a washing and waxing session is take it for a ride. After all, isn’t this the payoff for all your hard work? If you don’t have time to do that, idle your engine until the bike reaches operating temperature. You’ll be surprised at how much water drips out from hidden places the moment you start your engine. You may even see a little steam after a few minutes of idling.
