I've got a black alpinestars TZ-1 and I've been accumulating bugs lately and didn't know what I should use to clean them off with. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Wet rag or sponge should do it. You should also give it some leather grease (sattle grease) or mink oil for it to last longer. Don't waste money on spray conditioner - doesn't work as well.

Except it's called "saddle soap" here in the States.
( sometimes you have to translate things from EU on this site)

Umm - sattle soap is for cleaning, right? The grease is for conserving...

Saddle soap cleans and conditions keather and is all that I use on most of my leather goods (including my saddles
, holsters, dry weather leathers, etc.). I also use mink oil on anything which I expect to be exposed to large amounts of water ( my street & track wet weather suits, I have a saddle that I use for rainy conditions, work boots,hunting boots, etc.).
