cover for winter storage / wet weather. Same?
« on: November 05, 2013, 07:07:43 PM »
I'd like to get a cover for winter storage in my garage - one for protection from dust and dirt, but also that will not hold moisture underneath.

I'd also like to get a cover for protection against rain and weather for when I take a longer trip and I don't have access to indoor storage wherever I end up staying.

Can they be the same cover?  Or should I be looking at different ones for each purpose?  Last winter's garage storage cover was two bed sheets pinned together; and maybe that's fine.

Anybody have a particular brand or style they like, of a size that is a good fit for our bikes?  It's mail order for me here, so I can't try any on for size...

You have to find one with vents to keep it dryer inside, but I suspect that you might still have some corrosion problems. Spray the bike with ACF50 if you're going to put it under cover.
