Re: covers

The garage would be better than any cover.

Re: covers

I agree with cmack. The downside to any cover is if dirt, dust, sand, etc. blows up under the cover and then the wind blows for prolonged periods of time, your paint will get buffed. This is the killer in Albuquerque, lots of dust and sand in the air and winds that blow for days at 20 - 30 mph.

Re: covers

Also, if you use a cover, you should take it off on sunny days to air and dry out the bike a little. Condensation can build up under the cover.

Re: covers

Lycra Geza covers work well, but they aren't waterproof.
