I've noticed the black areas of the cases seem to mark very easily. They also show everything. What are folks using to clean and care for this area?

Thanks!

I've always used WD-40 after my mechanic recommended it from his BMW school. My old RT bags were pretty much scuff free at trade-in.

Maybe it oiled my shoes and made them slip off?

My dealer uses Maguire's Back To Black. I need to get some as well.

Not the inside of the saddlebags but the black unpainted exterior of the saddlebags.

Ahha, that's better!
I must admit I was thinking this is one anal group of riders!!!!
Bugger, now I'll be looking at the black area of my bags as well. Polished the bike for the first time last Sunday. I'm a hard core Meguires man, however, there are some other products now available in Oz for me to choose from (AutoGlym etc).

Best wishes everyone.

Probably shouldnt use bugger and anal in the same paragraph should I?

I used to use Mequire's primarily. I recently made the move to Zaino wax products after frequenting some car shows. Has some hardening catalyst you add to the wax (4-5 drops). I get a better shine and seems to last longer. An ounce or two of their stuff will do my car and GT. No kidding!

Pricey stuff though, but you use far less of it. First time I ever used a clay-bar too. Worked wonders.
