When working, I'm doing 300-650K a day…I found cheapies replaced often is better than the rest. So not much cheaper in total…cuz you'll go thru 2-3 at $8 instead of one at $18-24…but you get more time with a newer blade on the glass.

I was thinking of giving the Super Silicone's a try.

HAHAHAJA.

I use stock ones because they cost $8.00 each so I change them once or twice a year. New yesterday and they work splendidly.

Debate? Bikes are made for riding not pushing.

When we did a 10,000km road trip this summer, I found that the Rain-X brand windshield wash made a big difference to how clear the windshield was in rain storms between wiper strokes. It doesn't cost any more than other name brand windshield wash so was worth it.
