How to remove the goo?

I went to a track course and the sticker they put on the windshield won't come off. Any suggestions to remove the goo?

+1 on the Goo Gone. Used it on a new windshield and no damage to the plexiglass

When you start to remove a sticker and part of the goo stays on your bike or whatever, stop and go get the heat gun.
Warming a sticker will cause the goo to stay with the sticker and come off cleanly, leaving no residue to clean off.

I concur...with one modification. Rather than use a heat gun, which runs the risk of getting too hot and damaging plastics and/or Plexiglas, I use an old hair dryer. It gets hot enough to do the job, but typically won't damage anything.

Any leftover residue gets treated with Goo Gone, which is basically concentrated orange oil (from orange peels).

If it's a good day to wash the bike, it's a better day to ride the bike.
