How Do you Clean Your Seat?

What do you use to clean it?

Do you put any kind of UV blocking treatment / preservative on it?

Charmin. Oh, wait, you probably mean the seat of the motorcycle.

Never mind.

I use my regular bike wash to clean the seat, but I use 303 protectant on it and all the special “wrap work” I’ve had done.

I've heard Armorall is not the ticket.
I guess I should ask if your seat is vinyl or leather?

Let me just say it is not the ticket. When you stop fast you slide forward and that is not something you prefer to happen.

I keep a towel in my saddlebag and wipe it off.

Riding is not just what I do but who I am.

I keep my butt on mine as much as possible. My back pockets scour any grime away.
