How can such a small bike take so long to clean? Fortunetly, I have discovered the secret to detailing bikes. All it does is involve beer and BBQ. I went to visit some friends, and while we were outside talking and grilling up some food, I spent the entire time cleaning my bike. The more buzzed I got, the less I cared how much time I spent on it. Apparently, I spent three hours just on the chrome alone. I woke up the next morning, walked ouside, and said, "Damn, this is one clean bike."
