All the cleaning is worth it after a good day off-road. Last time out on the Serow The bike & me were caked in crud. Me above the knees on me boots & textile pants, had to hose them off, the bike took an hour of cleaning. I hadn't been anywhere off-road just the country lanes. They were covered in mud, cow crap, grit & that sticky molasses salt mix the councils spread for ice, sticks like crap to a blanket, everywhere. All that cleaning for a road ride.
