it's a bike jacket, it is meant to be dirty - Harden the fuck up

Yep. My jacket is mostly white, and I clean it with Kiwi Saddle Soap. Usually just to get the *really* big bug splatters off. I also use it for pretty much all my other leather products, it's been pretty color safe. Costs about $6 at Target.


also, Leather Therapy.

I emailed her today about cleaning my suit, and shortening the sleeves on my jacket. My suit smells like a Mannheim hooker, she said no extra charge for rank suits, she has seen them all.

i need to get my suit up there for some trimming. Maybe I'll just wait and have her do it, but I think I will pick up some cleaner for now to get the big stuff

Thanks Steph

Take that jacket outside, throw it in the dirt, then piss on it. Then and only then is it ready to ride
