I live in Mississippi, and love bugs are extremely bad here. The best thing I have found to remove them is coca cola. put coke in a spray bottle. Spray the dead bugs with a lot of coke, wait a few minutes, then spray them off with a water hose. Then you can wash the bike as normal to remove the coke. If dead love bugs stay on the paint too long when you wash them off, there will be specks of paint missing. I've always been told this is because of the acid in their body. Here in the south, during love bug season, we wipe the front of our cars and trucks with petroleum jelly, that way the bugs don't stick to the paint, and are easy to wash off with soap and water. Some people wet a bar of soap, and rub it all over the front of the auto, which makes it easier to was them off. We also buy bug screens to cover the grill to keep the bugs out of the radiator. People that don't live in love bug areas have no idea how bad they are. Nor do they know how bad fire ants are. But that's another story.
