Is your finish matte because it's camo or the solid matte color like they are putting on cars now? I don't wax Camo because of the finish. I use that SC1 motorcycle polish stuff instead. It's pretty cool how they put the camo on at the factory in Lincoln. There is an outfit in Beaver-Utah Hydrographics-that does the same for gun stocks.
Camo yea I use tire shine on it every now and then and it works great.

Yeah I know I'm weird, but you won't get a gloss like this without the paste wax. (I do apologize for the dust on the tires....will try to do better)

Besides, never know when Pebble Beach might have a wheeler show, and gotta be prepared to roll out there on a moment's notice....enclosed trailer of course.

If I want mine to look GREAT I just stand further back when I take the picture.

Ghost, it looks great without all those gaudy stickers. (y)

Installed a new front sleeve, rings, piston, oil, filter, coolant, and took it for a hard break-in run. Start to finish from machine shop to the trail was two days and two nights.

Going out for a normal trail ride tomorrow.
