Yep, that too. I took the bike out the past 2 weekends and noticed a little bit of salt residue on the lower frame. Years ago I used to work at a dealership with a indoor heated detail department, and while that would be ideal, I think I'm going to put some old towels down in the garage in the next week or so and use a spray bottle with hot water to wet it all down and wipe it clean. Then I'll probably do a once over with some quik detailer and put her down till March...
