I usually clean mine at least once a week. Especially after long rides to get the bugs and tar off. A clean bike, is a happy bike. And a happy bike is a fun bike.

Any time it is a nice warm morning, I don't have to work that day, and I plan on riding. Or sometimes in the evening after work. In short, it varies, but if I am noticing too many fingerprints, bugs, or smudge marks from road grime, I hozer off around once a week or so.

I try to clean my bike once a week. Sometimes it goes a couple weeks without a wash.

White rims really get dirty fast.

i wipe it down everytime before i ride . that's when i'm leaving the house . wash or clean it real good every week check the fluids, air, for loose screw, etc........ and it depends on the weather .
