Default Best way to keep her looking good?

Traded my old RK for a Ultra Limited last month and want to love the deep gloss shine almost as much as the extra power and heated grips. Any suggestions on how to keep it looking this way and still ride every day?

IMO the best stuff out there is Captain Richards. You can google it online. A little pricey but a bottle will last a long time. Not only cleans but the more you use it the deeper the shine. My bike is on 07 with 37000 miles on it. Looks better than on the showroom when I bought it new.

Yep, them Kings are purty.....love mine!!! I use several different things on mine. I like Turtle Wax Ice Synthetic wax and spray detailer. Doesn't leave white residue on the engine. I use it on the inner fairing on my wifes SG Trike.
