I got a great leather jacket, wear it everytime I ride pretty much. I'd like to have it for a long time, but know nothing of maintaining it and cleaning it. Some advice would be great. Here's a pic of me in it...

I was saying this weekend how I liked the holes for the headset to go thru... But as far as maintaining the leather, I am not sure..... I would suggest googling

Saddle soap to clean it.

Mink oil to protect it.

Any horse tack store to find it.

Read directions to apply it.

Don't know; I never used such a thing. Old school military training/care for boots is what I know. Just applied it to jackets.

Mink oil waterproofs leather and rejuvenates it. Gives it a luster.

I don't know what leather cleaner from wal-mart does.

They seem to work fine, I only use them because I already have them.
