Depending on where you live, you may get condensation on the bike itself when left outside or even in a not properly ventilated or heated garage.
As soon as you put a cover on the bike (no matter what claim they make about it being breathable) you seriously slow down the moisture evaporation.
Shock horror, you remove the cover after a couple of weeks and you find all is rusted!
Make sure you take the cover off & air the bike regularly

the best protection a cover gives is from the SUN>

Re: Motorcycle Covers

A perforated cover isn't a bad thing, if you basically shrinkrap your bike with a 100% waterproof cover you'll end upwith rusting parts and all kinds of electrical problems from condensation building up in your electrical components. With the preforted covers like the one you are describing it allows air flow through the material so that the bike remains dry. It will get a little wet in the rain but even with a waterproof cover you'll end up with moisture buildup than can't escape.

Check out bikebandit.com I bought one a couple of years ago for the RC. Dont remember the price that I paid. It was well worth the money. Bike stays covered and off the ground in the garage.

Motorcycle Covers

I am looking to purchase a HEAVY DUTY motorcycle cover but think that paying up to $100 seems a bit much.

I bought a cover with my bike from the Honda dealership but it is a POS! It is not waterproof so when it rains I can actually see my bike right through it.. ..maybe I am wrong but it seems that you would want it covered to keep it out of the rain/elements.

I am looking for a good website/store to go and pick up a good cover. Any suggestions!?
