Greetings WR 450 lovers!

I just wanted to share an easy detailing tip for your bike's tires. If you buy Armor All Tire Foam, all you have to do is spray it on the tires--no wiping required. This will really make the tires have that wet/showroom look to them when you are cleaning your bike after a ride.

Keep riding...it is the source of life and keeps us young!!

I just love my 2007 WR450..what a great bike!!

I use something very similar. I think it is called "tire bright". I just spray it on and leave it.

It sure makes the tires shine and draws your attention away from the scratched plastic.

I find that with the amount of time my WR spends in the dirt and bush and the little to no amount of time it spends at bike shows, I just leave them "as is"
Will try the stuff on my car though! :crazy:

Wow fancy. I use fresh dirt after a good rain storm, I think of it as a good coat of wax on the rubber to protect it from the harsh environments.

This post is a clear example of the two different types of WR owners... I'm on the opposite end (I detail my tires with dirt)...

Despite our differences at least we have one thing in common.... the love for our WR's..... some of us just have different opinions on what looks good.

OK, I gotta ask how you know that.

I have a mental image of Armor all on the knobs of your tires as you go for a quick ride on pavement.

Yeah, I know its a little over the top.

Unfortunately, I don't get out on the bike often enough so it may sit in the garage for a month between rides. I figure time spent with my WR is the next best thing as time ON my WR. So a couple of times per season, it gets pampered.

Change that image to the bike slding down the loading ramp.... a little faster than me. holding the front brake on with a nice shiny front tire didnt do much good. :crazy:
