Ive never seen anything like this, do you know of any other brands?
Unfortunately I don't know any other brand and I think that has been discontinued by manufacter.
but if you google " water less cleaning " you will find lots of info.
Amazon sell waterless product (spay bottles and microfiber) kits that work as well.

I only have used this tissues and are practical.
I never had used the spay bottle. Yet.

Okay thank-you, I normally use a foam bottle on my karcher's low settings to cover the bike then microfibre it down.

Not sure if you have it in the States... but Muc-Off is awesome. Use about half of a one liter bottle per wash, but it always gets the crap off. Follow this up with WD-40 silicone shine and it looks as good as new.

Waterless cleaning just seems like scratched paint
I only use if is dust, bugs. If is really dirty I pressure wash before. No scratches so far. But yes if is sand or hard debris it may scratch.

DRZ400SM and random stuff people let me ride
I would never use stuff like that on my car but my bike is all colored plastic and powder coat so I give it hell. Plus it's only $100 to replace all the plastics

I use car shampoo after a light hose down (not pressurized) with a bucket of water and sponge. Rinse down, dry with microfiber cloth, then polish and or wax. I would stay away from using dish soap as it's usually very harsh and will strip the surface of the wax and coating that should stay. Of course if you want something really harsh to remove gunk, then dish soap will cut the grease.

well since my atv is offroad, it gets washed a lot. and since it's designed for offroad there isnt a lot to cover up. basically I just cover the air filter with a plastic bag, tight with zip ties and I hose her way down.

My cleaning kit of choice is a Sponge, Bucket of cold water, Fairy liquid and a little elbow grease. After washing it down with all that and drying it off, I give it the once over with Pledge or Mr Sheen (other furniture polish is available) gives it a great shine and it is anti dust hahahahaha.
