I wash carefully as well. Just be careful around electical connections, wiring etc. In other words don't shoot water into these areas. I don't cover anything with cloth or towels.
I use my shop air compressor to dry the bike completely in 35 years never had an issue with compressed air drying a bike. A leaf blower also works quite well to get most of the water off. Then you can go over the bike with a terry cloth towel. After washing I always start the bike let it run and warm up. Might even do a quick loop up the road. This will remove the rest of the water.
And I usually finish up with Plexus plastic cleaner polish on w/s and paint.
