I like S100--spray on, rinse off. To get the entire wheel, I spray then roll the bike until the wheels are covered. Rinse aggressively with high pressure and a narrow stream. Don't use S100 topside as all that rinsing will drown your electrics. Not rinsing well will leave a film. Of course, the bike is cool and in the shade.
I have tried many cleaners, including Simple Green and S100 gets me far better results. I use it on the engine and suspension too.
BTW, S100 can be diluted 1/3 with water and will work just as well and require less rinsing.
Its not often I do a hose style wash. Usually, I use spray detailer, when dirtier, I fill a pail with plain water and drop an old wash cloth in it and do the wet cloth, dry towel thing. I do the windshield first while the cloths are clean. I even do this at motels asking the desk or housekeeping for clean rags. Please do not use the room linen.
