Default Best Wax

Looking for a good wax to use on my bike that doesn't have to take me as long to use as Canuba Wax which I am using now, I'm a daily rider in Florida, Rain or Shine so just wanted some ideas on quality wax that is not as time consuming, Any Suggestions????

I've used Mother's liquid wax for years on my cars and my bike. Easy on easy off. It lasts a full season in Canada, producing a great shine with great paint protection.

Don't laugh but I never wax mine. I usually wipe it down with Pledge.

Drove for Mayflower MANY yrs ago and talked to another driver that hauled alot of show cars and said the same thing, Pledge was great to use.

Been using Zaino for many years. Not a wax. It is a show car polish. Doesn't not need to be applied in sections. You can do the whole bike at once. Temperature does not matter. It can be layered for a deeper shine and better light refraction. And it doesn't leave a residue. I only need to apply once a year. Usually do two coats per session. It lasts that long. Top shelf stuff.

I use some HD products but when waxing I use S100 products. There waq goes on & comes off easy. My last bike was black & it was great.

Meguiar's NXT here. Easy to use and makes the black paint look great. HD Detailer in between.
