Product Review by Dual Sport Alchemy: Cycle Wipes
Fatherhood has instilled many valuable personality traits in me like patience, compassion, and resilience. I’ve accrued these wonderful attributes sequentially by repeatedly cleaning up bodily fluids. The consistent handling of pediatric biohazards over years has taught me that there is nothing quicker or more convenient for cleaning than wipes.
My home is now a fully stocked armory of wipes – baby wipes, sanitizing wipes, disinfecting wipes, antibacterial wipes, and a Swiffer (which is an eloquent name for wipe on a stick). I also keep auto detailing wipes in my car for when (not to be confused with if) one of my little bundles of joy decides to projectile vomit all over the interior. Needless to say I thought I stocked a wipe for all occasions. Then I came across Cycle Wipes. Finally someone has created a product that brings the convenience and ease of wipes to a motorcycle application.
My previous method of cleaning goggles was to spackle them with a gelatinous blob of phlegm, then smear it around with a grimy snot rag. Sometimes this proved sufficient, sometimes not so much. Sometimes I inadvertently scratched the lens because my snot rag had become as supple as a rasp. Now I have a convenient way to clear my vision without using bodily fluids or potentially abrasive cloth. Cycle Wipes are a quick and easy way to remove bugs, dirt, deer poo, and/or blood from your goggles, face shield, and motorcycle – perfect for Dual Sport riding!
Cycle Wipes use a gentle, ammonia free cleaning solution that’s safe to use on sensitive plastics. This cleaning solution includes a dash of isopropyl alcohol for its quick drying and anti-streaking properties. Because Isopropyl alcohol also has medicinal applications, after you’ve cleaned your goggles, checked your oil, and wiped excess dirt from your tires Cycle Wipes can then be repurposed to disinfect your whinny friend’s compound fracture.
