cleaning leather suit?

Went out with Moe today to katy track to practice some laps on his NSR 50 and ended up going down. Went down in the grass and ended up getting mud and dirt all over the place.


Whats the best way to clean it off so it can shine for the next fall

I usually just hose it off and let it dry in the garage. After it dries I go back and use a cleaner/moisturizer on it.

Barnacle Bill suggests putting it in the washing machine, then hang it to dry (not in the sun) and rub hand lotion with lanolin on it while it dries. Myself I usually just wipe it down with very mild soapy water, maybe use a nail brush, then use Lexol to condition.
