Re: what protectant to use on the seats?
Many years ago I had a GoldWing Executive and started going to the GoldWing rallies. After going to a few there was one particular outfit, a 1200 Interstate and Hedingham Child/Adult, which all stood out due to its permanent shine. Upon asking the owner how he did it, come rain or shine, he told me the trick is regular furniture polish which has a silicon / beeswax base. The advantage to this kind of product is that it can be used everywhere on the bike without any issues at all and it even helps to keep the windscreen clear in the rain. I have used it since only ever occasionally applying 'car polish' when there is a difficult area to be polished. Househoud furiture polish is a cheap and effective solution, personally I use the hand pump variety as you can get refills as opposed to the aerosol types.
