Motorcycle Gear Maintenance
Leather motorcycling garments and shoes need a special treatment, so
they can’t be treated as other kinds of leather garments. This leather
has the special property of resistance to abrasion and to tensile
strength. Most of these leather garments are made of high-quality
cowhide, kangaroo or buffalo leather, with a minimum thickness of 1.2
mm., so that leather must be tough and durable.
