Front fork suspension lubrication

Hi,
Please don't laugh, is lubricating the front suspension required? like after a really rainy ride
or dusty road?
We were doing it on F-16's so I figured maybe its a thing on motorcycles as well..

Dont do it! the road grit will stick to the lube and ruin the seals.

All I do is wipe it down with some spray wax everytime I detail the bike.

front fork lubrication

What do you think about this?
Brunox Epoxy, TurboSpray, Lubri-Food, IX-50, IX-100, BikeCare, Waffenpflege
I know itīs made for bicycles - but does this really matter?
