Front wheel cleaning

For those of you who actually clean there wheels... Is there a technique you use on the front wheel? I never really cared on my 9er since the brake dust blended in with the wheel. My VFR has silver wheels and my front tire looks good and dingy.

I've tried to give the wheels a good scrub down, but the rotors on each side of the wheels, make it difficult to get my fat fingers into those hard to reach places.

Miguiars all wheel clean 1 or 2 times with a little brush does the trick.

I use the same degreaser Amazon.com: DuPont(R) Motorcycle Degreaser, Net Wt 11 oz. (M00110101): Automotive I use for chain maintenance. When I clean the chain I clean the wheels.
