Baking soda removes bugs like magic. Don't matter how smashed or baked on they are. Just wet your bike get a wet sponge, sprinkle baking soda on the sponge and gentle wipe across them and they are gone. Someone told me that the bug oils react with the baking soda some how and they come off. Don't know how it works for sure, but I do know it works like magic. Just came in from cleaning my 1150RT and the front was covered in bugs big and small, now it looks like new.
