transport cover....

Hiya , was wondering if anyone knows of a decent brand of bike cover that will fit the bike while its tied down and being transported. Ive seen a few, and have never been able to catch the brand name. Im looking for a quality cover that wont scratch the plastic.

Thanks in advance

Have you used one of these during transport ConqSoft?

and if so, how did your slits for the tie downs hold up?

Re: transport cover....

Yeah, I used one for towing, but I didn't cut slits. I put my straps on the lower triple, coming up from the front of the bike, so I had no need to cut it.

But, I know people who have cut the slits and had no trouble.

Re: transport cover....

I used a Geza cover for towing, prior to finally getting an enclosed trailer. I cut slits in it for the tie-downs. As a precaution, I sewed perpendicular to the slits at each end of the slits. I probably didn't need to. The cover's fine. I'm still using it to cover the bike when I go on overnight rides.
