Default Do you like leather?

I am going to get my seats reupholstered and was wondering what would be better, leather or vinyl. Does anyone have an opinion on that?

My bike is a tool and a toy, ridden rain or shine, hot or cold, year round. Leather looks awesome but won't stand up to the elements or the mileage like vinyl will. Just my $.02

Marine vinyl. Sheds water & easily dry-able. In San Diego's damp eve's, you'll want that marine vinyl. ;-)
