Was wondering if there was anything that can be put on the winshield to make the bugs come off easier. I'm thinking RainX or some kind of wax etc. Any thoughts??

Not that I am aware of. Rainx does not help and anything else is going to leave some kind of unwanted residue

Millions of miles in a truck, I have killed enough bugs to wonder if man could survive without windshields to control the bug population.
IMHO, Rain-X is worthwhile. But most is clean the bugs off at every stop. And clean all glass every day.

ReJex is better than Rain X. It goes on easier and comes off just as easy. I use it on the entire coach with the exception of tires and wheels. Works great in a fiberglass shower enclosure too.

Motorcycle windscreens, made of plastic cant be scrubbed as scrubbing scratches the plastic. to remove the bugs.
Bug Off and RainX are good products that not only make bug gut removal easier, also sheet rain water off like a waxed surface
M/Cs dont have wipers. So applying a release agent is best for them , not feasable for most.
Scrubbing off glass is a little more work and $ 0cost than treating with a release agent to get the bug guts off.
M/C yes. Glass no.

For 35 years, I've tried everything to keep the windshield clean. Typically, I would brake out the ladder, a nylon scrubber and window cleaner and scrub the windshield and towel dry. I still do this at home before a trip. However, I was looking for something to clean the windshield while on the road, particularly while getting fuel.

I bought the below scrubber and squeegee combo. I have just been dipping it in the fuel stop water/soap, whatever they have, and scrubbing the windshield. I do half and then squeegee. Amazingly, just their bucket water is doing a better job than the window cleaner I use, no residue. I get a little streaking from the squeegee, but the window really comes out clean.

I stow it and the pole in my generator compartment.

Take it from this biker... get some Bugslide. The more you use it the better it works.

When you're done for the day: a soft bristle brush and LOTS of plain water. Just do it as soon as you park.
