rust...

Hello there fellowes, I am really happy to seek your advise once more, but this time it is not for good...
The past 2 years I have moved to an Island for permanent residense and of course I brought my thruxie with me.
The problem is that the bike has started to oxidize almost everywhere,including the exhausts and i use rust penetrating fluids almost everytime I wash her. But it seems like nature is over everything I do.The rust seems to be almost everywhere and I don't know what to do.Any advice from you guys? I also have to mention that the bike is not protected form weather precipitation issues as it stays out.
