Nice ill have to get one, I ride in the rain a lot.

But in the mean time should I worry about the leather drying out or shrinking?

Will do, I'll go get some tomorrow. I ran out of conditioner last week after I took a shower with my suit on. Thought I was gonna pass out from the heat so I just fell in the shower lol

i would only use a suit dryer for moisture from sweat or mild dampness. i've read when your leathers are completely soaked, it's best to hang them in an open room with a fan circulating air in the room, not blowing directly on the leather. followed by a nice wipe down with leather conditioner. drying them out too quickly from being really wet is not good for leather. i would only use that dryer to help dry out sweat.



Motorcycling is not, of itself, inherently dangerous. It is, however, extremely unforgiving of inattention, ignorance, incompetence, or stupidity.

Re: Drying gear out?

^ my suit says don't hang just lay them flat. you will need to turn them over. I use lexol leather care products myself because they use the same oils the tanner does to make the leather in their conditioner. and it smells like a brand new suit again.
