I'll avoid the flippant remarks and
try to formulate an informative answer.
No, this isn't a good thing. The high
pressure forces water into the headset
and bottombracket where it promptly
does one of 2 things. Either it turns
the grease into some alien glop, or
it pushes dirt grime etc. into the bearings
wreaking havoc on the entire assembly
(sometimes it does both).
If you must hose down the bike, use a
regular garden hose, but not on a high
pressure setting, and never direct spray
towards headset and bottom bracket.
