Wet leathers?

While I was riding today I got rained on with my 2pc suit on. Is there anything I need to do to them. They where dry by the time I got home.

just hang them up so they dry all the way. about twice a year I will saddle soap(to clean) and then condition them. I used to turn my old leathers inside out and scrub the liner then let dry and tend to the leather part but since I got a new suit with a removable liner my maintenance has gone down.

U can use that really greasy stuff for cowhide leather the harley guys use;

I don't like that stuff so I use a leather conditioner to prevent cracking then a light water protector. Called Lennex or something like that; from an autostore for leather seats/upholstery.
