    I clean the leather bags but is seems later everytime I get into them I get black stuff on my hands.
    Is there a better cleaner than the Harley leather care or do I need to be doing something different?

    I have an old set of saddle bags, that I put black shoe polish on, then let them sit for a couple of days, then rub down fairly hard to take off the excess polish. I have not had to re-do mine for a couple of years now, and they look great. Granted I like my saddle bags to have the old look since they are rather aged.
