product to protect bike parts

Have just bought a Wee-strom today and was told by this gentleman about spraying the whole bike apart from brakes with some kind of lub to help protect the paint, engine and so on, but for the life of me can't remember the name it was something like 'Scot F.....' can any one help.

Cheers

I like turtle wax ICE

doesn't have any abrasive powder to wipe off

The old Honda spray polish can be had under a different name at Whitehorse
It is spray the one everyone used to swear by

Just don't spray it water and let her sit without a hot ride, you'll be fine

I take the bike off the road before they put salt down, but on my bicycle I use Boeshield.

Displaces moisture.
Dries to a clean waxy film.
Lubricates and protects all metals for months.
Will not harm paints, plastics, rubber or vinyl.
Attacks existing corrosion.
T-9 will also loosen rusted parts.

I don't know why the smartass comment above; I'd like the answer too.

I have a 2003 Vstrom thats rusting here in The Dominican Republic because my place is on the ocean,

and.........

I have a 1974 Norton in BC that I want to have restored next year, so I'll need to take better care than I have in the past. Its been in strage for years.

A little protective spray couldn't hurt.
