In the event where your bike isn’t Teflon coated, it is better for you to wax polish all painted parts or panels. You won’t want to see your bike stained with permanent or oil paints used during the festival to settle on the top layer of your bike paint. If you allow that, it may damage your bike and reduce the resale price if you are thinking of selling it in the future.
On the Move
If you don’t want to walk but want to move around with your bike, it is essential to ride slowly because of the crowd. To avoid sudden skidding or braking, it is important for you to maintain a safe distance during the day. To protect your bike, you can use a rain cover that suits the console. Furthermore, this will protect it from the colors and water used during the festival.
For many, the stain removal time is the toughest part. In spite of all your carefulness and precaution, you discovered your highly prized bike were stained and required cleaning. If you find yourself in this situation, don’t hesitate to wash it using water and mild soap as soon as possible.
