Which Outdoor Cover?

Hi guys, I don't have the luxury of a garage at the moment so I am in the marked for a new outdoor cover. I am interested in finding out what you guys(if any) use and which size?

Regards, Tomsy.

In the US Amazon offers heavy duty cover that fits the Bobber I have. It is very reasonably priced at $19.95. Even if the sun starts to weaken after long exposure, a backup cover would not be unreasonable. It also has two large rings through the front portion so you can run a locking cable or chain through it and your front tire. I have this cover on all my bikes.

I use an Oxford Cover.

Just a thought: I had to have my downpipes replaced under warranty. The damage seemed to be in the area where the cover would come into contact with the exhaust - not when it was hot obviously.

Mark, thank you!
Chezqui which cover did you opt for? I've been leaning toward the Protection or Stormex?! Both have really good reviews with the Protection being the newer model.

Errr, I put a cover on mine - in the garage. It's dusty and a tad damp.

I'm an indoor garage guy myself, but if I had to park mine outside I'd go with this:

You need to be careful with covers on bikes outdoors, the material movement in wind can cause quite a bit of damage... Not experienced it, but seen the outcome...
