How do I get rid if spiders leaving webs

Like the title says. how do I get rid of spiders leaving webs all over my bike?

I donít think it matters, but its cobwebs in the front fairing, connecting my handlebars to mirrors, all over my pegs/swingarm/ tail bodywork?

Clearing them away and riding doesnít do anything; the spider(s) just hide somewhere under the tank or tucked somewhere around the frame and engine, and come out the next day...

Get some lizards to eat the spiders. But then, you'll need some birds to get rid of the lizards. Then get some cats to get rid of the birds, then dogs to get rid of the cats, then a bear to get rid of the dogs, then get a gun to get rid of the bear, the get a high school class to protest and get rid of the gun. A list of chores and some homework should get rid of the school kids.
See ? Easy peasy

+1 peppermint extract with a tiny bit of soap to lube it up. Wash the bike with it.

This is how I got rid of my wasp problem.

Peppermint oil does something nasty to exoskeletons.

So, sounds like you need some high school students to get rid of the spider. Buck stops there.

So, washing with Dr. Bronner's might work?

Wait until one decides to stop hiding under your tank or in the fairing and seeks the cover of your jacket.

Oh yeah, never leave your helmet or riding gear in the garage. Those little drop down from the rafters commando spiders will get in, they are almost impossible to see. They will wait until the freeway on-ramp, just about merge time to start in on you.
