Thanks! There's pollen all over it right now, but I try to keep it clean for 12 years/152K miles. It hasn't seen many dirt roads and pretty much no mud in the last year, so it has been staying pretty clean.

About once a year I soak it on some sort of orange/cirtus cleaner, hose it off real good, spray on rubber/vinyl protectant, then take it for a drive. Works like a charm for not doing an in depth, scrub every corner cleaning. There's dirt/oil "film" on the valve covers that would need to be scrubbed off, but not much other buildup.
