How do I preserve the vinyl seat on an ATC 250R?

My 250R has the original seat and it is surprisingly in perfect shape after all these years. I plan on riding the heck out of this trike and I was wondering how do I preserve the vinyl seat on my ATC 250R. Is there something you guys use on your seat to preserve the condition of the vinyl? Let me know what you think...

Many Thanks!

Good old Armor All works good for conditioning vinyl, but I also know there are numerous marine products that are meant to condition vinyl boat seats and keep them from getting brittle. You may want to look into the marine based products.

I agree, look to the marine industry. Boating people are always struggling to keep their seats from cracking. I've also seen a few different vinyl seat conditioners on the market that supposedly soften old vinyl seats.
