Thanks everyone for these suggestions.
I'll have a look at that link as well.

Take the time to look at the Bennets link I supplied above. It is a pretty exhaustive test of a range of anti corrosion products. Some of which are well advertised do not perform very well. Agreed waterless wash won't solve the OPs issues. In some cases a good wet wash will do more to prevent atmospheric related corrosion by removing the salt spray, road grime and associated crud than a waterless wash. The key is making sure you remove standing water from problem area afterwards.
For me a waterless is wash is only used for a interim between decent washes. Fortunately corrosion is not an issue where I live so I can get away with 1-2 full wet details annually.

How are you cleaning your bike? Especially before storage.
Speaking from experience. I have NEVER wash my bike with a bucket of water and car soap and hose. This is on a Tambo with just touch 10,000km after 12 years of ownership. so I don't ride her often about 1000km per year.
I've always use a waterless wash to clean the bike after a ride. I use Optimum Opti-clean all the time and have ZERO oxidation on any alloy parts. I buy Opti-clean in gallons which makes 4 gallons of waterless wash.
As no water makes contact with the bike, there is no chance of oxidation. Plus the Opti-clean leaves protective coating on any surface it touches.
Using a waterless wash should reduce or slow down the alloy oxidising.
