Fork Seal

Just a quick question.
What is the potential impact of holding off a month or two on replacing a fork seal while continuing to periodically ride the bike?
Obviosly replacement asap is preferred. Thanks in advance for feedback.

Little leak no big deal but if it reaches the brakes..not good. I tied a rag aroudn the top of the fork to catch leakage once worked fine..
HAD LOTS OF GOLDWING 75-83
NOW INTO 1500'S..RIDING A 1998 SE

FAIR WINDS,
RB
