Question Cleaning Product for Stock Seat

What kind of cleaning products or protectants are you guys ysing to clean your stock VV seats? I have tried a search for this and come up with everything from types of seats to clean exhaust but not what product to use. Anyway, I dont want to put somthing on there and the wife end up in front of me when I tap the front brake. I do however want to keep the seat looking good and protected from the elements.
thanks,
Frank

Lemon Pledge is EXCELLENT to use on the WHOLE bike. I have been using it for about 7 or 8 yrs. Windshield, paint, vinyl, leather, and chrome, it does it all. The best thing to remove bugs, however, is hydrogen peroxide. It dissolves the bug guts within seconds, does not hurt paint, chrome or plexiglass, and is cheaper than anything else, too.

I use Mcguires leather wipes on the seat and saddle bags, works great. Not slippery at all. Then I use turtle wax synthetic Ice to wax her up.

WARNING: Lemon pledge can tend to make the seat a little slippery. Having said that, it cleans EVERY surface wonderfully!
