I feel the Karcher has slightly more power than needed, so great.

I was going to pop out and record a bit, but I think this shows it good enough:

That’s the problem, there are literally hundreds of nooks and crannies on a motorcycle, and the pressure washer is great for getting in right where your fingers don’t.

Yes I know but to do the job properly you need to get on your hands knees and back.
I just don't think jet washers on a bike is a good idea long term.
Eventually the constant blasting is going to compromise the finish, not to mention forcing water into places where you don't want it to go.

That’s the benefit of the OC3, the power wouldn’t hurt you, but good enough to use with a brush and get crud away.
