Paint protection

I finally get to pick up my ride this coming week and would like to keep it as new looking as possible. I've been out of country and only ridden a bike for the past five years so I'm way behind on the latest waxes and paint protection. Any suggestions will greatly appreciated.

First get a Clear bra done on the car! It will save you from all the rock chips and road rash. Second which is optional but some people swear by it is get a ceramic coating of either opticoat or cquatz.

I have the clearbra done. If I could do it all over again I would do the whole hood so you don't see the line going across the hood. And I'm lazy. That means no more waxing the hood.

Cool, thanks for the suggestions. I'll check into the ceramic coating. I've read mixed reviews on the clear bra, I'll see what me dealer is offering.
