I try not too...
I kept my last bike so clean that I didn't use her unless the weather was perfect... what a waste! I kept her clean for the re-sale investment argument, but even if I only cleaned her once a year and just before I sold her she would have still fetched similar money... what an idiot!
So now I ride my Mille ever day, no matter the weather and clean it as little as possible. After all my bikes Italian and they don't like water, corrosion and electric problems galore if cleaned after every trip.

I usually try and clean mine once a week. Doesn't always work out, and when the weather has been good and dry then it's not so imperrative that I do. But I use my bike for commuting so does about 500 miles a week without the weekend riding, so I do feel it needs the love I can spare. Chain cleaning and maintaining even more so. Got it down to a fine art of getting the thing really well cleaned (chain included) within and hour and half.
but each to their own. I like to keep mine clean as I can, and as others have mentioned, gives me the chance to look it over and see if there's anything that needs fixing.
