Cleaning Perforated Leather Jacket

Earlier this year I purchased a perforated leather jacket i talked about HERE. I got to wondering, is there anything different about cleaning one of these as opposed to a regular leather jacket? I would image not, but thought there might be some better products to use that what I have. I normally use saddle soap and/or mink oil, but the products I have are in a paste form. I figure it would be a pain with all of those little holes getting gummed up. What liquid products would be good to use?

2007 Vulcan 1600 Meanstreak (Love Affair)
1999 Yamaha 1100 V-Star Custom (Right Price at the Time)
2008 V2K Classic (Favorite Vulcan)
2014 HD Ultra Limited (Bells and Whistles)
Who would have thought I would grow up to become "Spatially Educated" and play Connect-the-Dots for a living.

I just use mink oil on mine . . . heavy on the non perforated parts, and wipe the excess off of them to go over the perforations without clogging up too many of them . . .
