Motorcycle watering can

So, in my efforts to keep Selene clean I have invested in one of these:

Motorcycle watering can

You see, we live in an apartment building and there is no access to outside water taps.  I was finding it rather difficult to keep filling up buckets, dragging them downstairs and pouring them over Selene.  This holds as much as the buckets, but I use less of it because I can actually direct the water where I need it.

I used it yesterday to clean up Selene for the ride on Saturday and It works like a charm.  You can pressurize it, it's made of metal and you can control the water to be a stream or mist.  I think I may have to spraypaint it black though...

Great idea Geist! Think I will use it for the windows of my new house!

Wow, who'd have thunk!!! Great idea.

kt: Not sure if it will provide enough pressure to clean your windows, it's not like a pressure washer or anything.

betty: I wish I could claim this as my idea, but it was passed onto me from a person in one of the many forums I visit. And yeah, it is a great idea for those not able to use exterior water taps.

Fantastic! - I also live in an apartment and in my area of Australia we have a terrible drought and washing of vehicles is banned except by rainwater or recycled water (seriously). I could use recycled water in one of these with out too much trouble.

ironchef: Wow, that would be the perfect thing for you! Can't imagine using recycled water though...hmmm.
