I have this really great lotion that I discovered through my boyfriend. It keeps my hands soft all day long. The downside to this lotion is that for the first hour or so after you apply it ---it leaves your hands slighty oily. Nothing major but as we all know oily lotion is a no-no when you don't want to darken your patina So today after I left home grabbed a paper napkin and I have been carrying my speedy with napkins wrapped around the handle. I got some funny looks at the car wash or Maybe it was just in my head. But I don't care. Anything to save the vachetta on my black speedy. LOL Just had to share.
