Ryan, the thing to do is to google search Horse Saddles, Saddlery, Tannery and Saddle Care. Those who are in the know will be the ones who cater to ranchers who ride their horses a lot and who's saddles see much sunlight and diverse weather. - that's what you and everyone else who owns an Indian or any bike with a leather saddle. You are in Wisconsin so in the north, you want to find out what the working horsemen use in the northern regions.Does anyone have any suggestions or experience with maintaining, a leather saddle? My 1984 VT700c (first bike) has a vinyl saddle that requires little maintenance. I would like the saddle on the Scout to age and last for many years.
