All you black Goldwing owners

Have any of you tried Turtle Wax's new Black Box cleaning and polishing system? Here's a link:

Looks like a promising system. I use Lemon Pledge for daily use, but like to put a nice coat of wax on my bike couple times a year.

Clean it, just to get it dirty again??

It does look good when it's cleaned up - for about 15 minutes. If the climate is good enough to wash it, then it's good enough to ride it instead. A never ending spiral, isn't it?

Wow. I'm glad to see this is about black Gold Wings and not about black Gold Wing owners. I thought it was headed down the wrong road!

Black Wings

Thank's for the info. Will try it as soon as I can locate it. Will be great if it covers all the scratches in the clearcoat. I have never had a problem with clearcoat on any other bike as much as this Wing.

Black Gold Wing

I use Glare now - when I wash it - but will take a look at this.
Mine is the 2007 Nebulous Black and because of the tiny metallic flakes it looks a little dusty all the time.

Yeah, I didn't think about the confusion. I guess I should have said, "All you owners of black Goldwings". Sure hope I didn't offend anyone.

All you black Goldwing owners

Thanks for the Post, I'm going to check into it, I was going to order it on line but it cost $22.00 plus $10.60 for shipping, I going to drive to Wal-mart or Target instead and save a little $$.
