Leather Jacket Balm/protection

Want to nourish (love that word, although “moist” is better) my bestest leathers! What’s that stuff the girls sell at the Bike Shows, when they offer to buff your boots whilst you stare down their cleavage? Anyone got anything else they recommend that looks after and maybe even waterproofs. Ta muchly

Re: Engine just cuts out! Any suggestions please?

Sudden stopping (as said) more likely electrical, fuel starvation will be slower & more ragged stall.

Re: Iron curtain revisited.

CX500 - Plastic Maggot - HATE THEM ............. Reason being; back in 1980 I was out on my first Z900A4, girlfriend on the back (squashed into the 2:4 seat :twisted: ) and I was scraping the Zed on a large roundabout (bike was wobbling all over the shop) when a CX500 wafts past on the outside of me...
