I spray them once in a while when I remember too. Usually at the end of the season, when I actually make an effort to get the bugs off.

To protect them from drying out and cracking, rain, dirt, etc. The sun wil dry them out pretty well, especially if i'm going to be in the California and Nevada sunshine.

I'm gonna spray mine with the extra heavy super strong mulithreat nylonized kevlar fiber blend of titanium finish......... to protect them from my racing faux pas's :D

I like doing my leather stuff with a good wax bearing leather cream. I find it adds some suppleness to the leather better than the spray on water repellents do. The stuff of choice at the moment is EMU brand Mink Oil in a little tub. And NO it's NOT made from Emu's thankyouverymuch :p I like to rub it in with a little shoe brush.

how bout shoe polish?:D

hey bruce, where do you buy the EMU mink oil?
Don't remember. In fact Sherry might have got it. But anyplace that sells leather garments should have it.

We also have a little tub of Taurus leather wax and preservative that advertises that it's great stuff too. But we got that from an outdoor place. It's great for making the leather supple and water resistant but it definetley leaves the leather a little waxier feeling for a couple of weeks until it finishes soaking in.

Oh, just thought of a place. Any of the Harley shops will have good leather preps :D
