Saddlebag, I did opt to let it soak for awhile. I'm gonna go back and soap again (I use glycerin soap) and then oil the next day or so.
I'm mostly only worried about the fact that the skirt isn't lying flat still. Doesnt look like it'd hurt much, but it doesn't look as nice, lol.
If the seat was an inch bigger no one would be getting it, lol. I'm assuming it has QH bars (from just looking, I can measure later today), same as what I think my black one had.
Oh, and the seat is beyond soft..omg *drools* It's soft/smooth and feels like it has memory foam sitting underneath, lol.
Oh, and I use saddle soap on both upper and bottom sides of the leather..and everywhere inbetween, lol.
Shoot, I took the hose on "jet" and sprayed the thing down before I even thought about actually going through and touching it, lol. I also did more than one coat of soap. I did about three layers (until it stops absorbing/the white goes away) all over, which is what I did with the black one as well. I have a feeling it may not soak up too much more. I have to dump my water after each section (skirt/fender/stirrup/swells/etc) because the rag (usually a toothbrush >.>) and soap usually make everything brown on the first go around, I wipe that off and use a little less water on the rag and go again, no more brown. Your hand/arm/wrist get real sore after awhile though, lol.
