How to Break-In a New Leather?

831 Views 11 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  madefrtv
If it makes a difference, I decided to start with a 2 piece suit. Besides the obvious of just wear the suit and ride.

Any recommendation on how best to break it in? Or more importantly what not to do?

Should I start w/a leather conditioner?

When you ride ( hard enough anyway ) you sweat. The moisture escapes into the leather and helps break it in. A faster way is to ride in the rain and then be sure to ride it dry. I have done this many times and really works the leather to your body. Then you could just get the garden hose and wet yourself down good and take off riding to dry it in. That works pretty good too. Be sure to put the leather conditioner back in once it is dry.
