Sidecar Covers
« on: August 02, 2011, 10:10:08 PM »

So, I just purchased a military rig!  Here it is:



Anyway,
For now, the rig has to be stored outside and I need a rainproof cover. I live in New Orleans and it rains alot.

I want something that will cover both the bike and the sidecar, but I can't seem to find anything.  Does anyone have one / use one / have any ideas as to where to find one?

Thanks!

Welcome aboard sonhouse and congrats on your Bullet !

 An awning or shelter with lots of ventilation will go a long ways towards fighting condensation and won't abrade your paint like a cover will.

Shelters of the type below are popular up here in the wet and rainy pacific northwest.

Nice choice on the Military too  ;)
I can break it better,,,,at night, in the rain, on the trail,, 20 miles from nowhere.

I've seen the shelters and they would be great.  However, I'm gonna have to park it on the street.  So the shelters really aren't feasible...

It's not that big of a deal.  The street is like, 12ft. from my front door, but my neighbors (and traffic) wouldn't appreciate me taking up the street.

You ought to be able to find a large plastic tarp at a sporting goods store.

Something like this 8 foot X 10 foot  shown in this link might work.

Search for Ural dealers- they usually stock covers that will fit over an entire rig. Check Holopaw Corvette under accessories. If you call ask for Gene.

I've got a one piece cover that came with my Ural. Sorta like a giant drawstring duffle that covers the bike and chair. I've never used it and have no need for it. It's made of  a soft light weight red ripstop nylon. The bike came rom NV so I don't know how waterproof it is but it could be run through a wash cycle with nik-wax etc. Price is right...free, you pay the shipping. If interested PM me.
