Another thing that you can after washing the bike, spray some Lemon Pledge then wipe it off, this will reduce the amount of mud that collects on your plastic and it does make it shiny

I'm not much for keeping my bike spotless, I'll usually pressure wash and spray the chain and other needed components with lubricant.

I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.
