Well im bored and my pets dont do any tricks but eat lol. So just want to see if you guys wash your own quads or someone else? My friends daughter washes mine, she does a good job so of course i give her 10$ for her hard work. Ive carried her in my arms as a new born and now she is 13, dam that makes me feel old. Me and her parents went to school and grew up together so we're a tight unit. Heres some pics, i know she isnt wearing a helmet, but the quad isnt on or key isnt turned, she just hopped on after she washed it:)

i normally wash mine when i get some mud on it, but i try to stay away from the mud now a days. normally unload it at a "do it yourself" type car wash and go to town with the pressure washer.

I wash mine, sometimes if I come back to tired from the dunes I may stop at a car wash and have them wash it but I hate having to keep an eye on them so they don't blow all the stickers away with the pressure washer.
Here's one having it washed at the car wash...

I wash both of mine, sometimes I can get my daughter to help. I have to wash them for sure if you get Ocotillo mud on them. So much alkali in the soil it will eat your aluminum.

damn i need to find a pic for this thread....after moto 1 at a soupy mud race, my brothers LTR had zero compression from ingesting silty water. i let him run my quad, but my moto was close to his, so when i drove off the track i parked it and he started washing it and changing the filter while i got out of my gear and cleaned myself. a fellow racer took a pic of him washing it and then everybody used it for a while to break my brothers stones, because it was the 3rd race in a row he blew something up on his machine.

normally, i am the one to wash it. its not uncommon at races between motos for us to help each other out and wash other peoples machines, so my brother and a couple close friend racers will do it occasionally.

i would love to be able to say "my wife does it in a bikini" but she does a terrible job, and wouldnt be wearing a bikini at my garage or the race track so..... S.O.L. on that photo op.

I wash my own, to the point that my friends make fun of me. I'm sorry, but there's nothing quite like a clean quad ;).
