    I agree, Richard. A pressure washer often has 1500 to 2000 psi. An electric leaf blower works on moving a large volume of air, not psi. So the danger of having water get forced into places you...

    Kevin has some good points, but if you think about it, the bike gets some wind forcing air at high speeds into nooks and crannies. I'd just use some common sense.

    A little less funny, but interesting from a different POV. You can debate whether the authors' numbers are correct, but the general assumptions made are worth looking at.
