    If you can feed your jet wash off a bucket or trough, then you're safe.

    I thought I might take my bike with me when I take the car to the 5 foreign car wash to see if they would give it the once over at the same time !!

    Sorry old chap, caravans probably come under the "cleaning of motor vehicles" section because they are a form of trailer designed to be towed behind a car (or so the legislation says):

    Cleaning a private motor-vehicle using a hosepipe
    5. In section 76(2)(b) of the Act, “private motor-vehicle” means—
    (a) a mechanically propelled vehicle designed, constructed or adapted for use on roads, except—
    (i) a public service vehicle, as defined in section 1 of the Public Passenger Vehicles Act 1981(c), and
    (ii) a goods vehicle, as defined in section 192 of the Road Traffic Act 1988(d);
    or
    (b) a trailer designed, constructed or adapted for attachment to a vehicle falling within paragraph (a).

    Recreational use... does that include 'Wet T-Shirt' competitions....??

    and what about the garden shower.... that's connected by a hose.... ??? Is washing the OH a sin/illegal after a swim in the pool?

    But we don't have a ban over here.... just expensive metered water!
    Ride hard but avoid the hikers
