There are all sorts of spray cleaners that are easier and quicker than soap and water. Next time you're at the shop check them out. They have all surface cleaners that will work on your windshield, plastics, and even the exhaust can.
I use this stuff called K&L Cycle Wash.. get the bike wet, spray K&L stuff all over, let it sit a few minutes, then hose it off.. Usually that's all I need to do.. Of course there's the occasional sticky bug that wont come off, so you have to wash it off with a mitt or sponge etc, but I swear by that stuff
