motorcycle covers? - July 10, 2010, 09:47 AM

I have the weather handler sportsman motorcycle cover that I purchased at walmart, When It rains some of the water that builds up on top around the seat and tank area vapors inside or when its windy while raining the sides of ther bike get all wet. No matter how hard I tie down the straps water still gets in there.

What do you guys use for the unlucky bikes without a garage?

Not to thread whore on you Jiz01 - Do you people know how many f-ing motorcycle covers I've had stolen in my time? WTF!!! I started off buying the really nice ones... After about 3 were stolen I went to the cheapo's. Had the same one since.

I've got a Tourmaster from Motorcycle Helmets & Gear - Buy Shoei, Arai Helmets and More and is nice for $38 (add shipping if order under $100) and a DOWCO, nice but damn that was expensive.

Are you sure your covers are getting stolen and not blown off by wind? I live in the hood in DC, and have never had my covers stolen... but a bunch of them were blown off by wind.

I am not impressed with Dowco quality at all. I like Nelson Rigg All Season Cover the best. It holds up great over the years.

Geza motorcycle stretch covers. A bit pricey, but WELL worth the expense. These are form-fitting stretch covers that can be used for towing, are water repellent/UV resistant, and breathable. They also pack very tightly down into an included stuff sack. The model I got (pro-plus) can be towed at up to 85mph, and was great on my cross country drive from Cali to NoVA.
