I like to keep my bikes clean. And I'm not afraid to put miles on them, or even do long rides in the rain. I usually hand dry with a Terry cloth to get the road film and water spots off. My bike looks a lot better when it's clean and polished. I have never used a blow dryer of any sort on my bikes, but I have nothing against them.

Unless 70mph is considered blow drying.
