I recommend treating them like a nice pair of sunglasses. Don't wipe them with a shirt or paper towel when they're dirty, just wait until you can clean them with running water and a microfiber cloth. Also, they are replaceable - take some caution but don't obsess over it. Instead, treat them well and you can replace them in 5 or so years, then you have a trail set and a street set if you so choose.

I accidentally scratched my rear window trying to clean some bird poop. I used a good carnuba wax and they mostly disappeared.
I think windows could be polished like plastic headlights if you put them on a table with a clean blanket.

New owner too, but was told to use soapy water and rinse grime off then 50/50 rubbing alcohol and water with new micro fiber to clean going in one direction only. Then a second new micro fiber to dry. No circles. I go left to right only.

Having a trail set after you replace them is brilliant. Will have to remember that!
