Couple notes about linking to the COG store... Anyone who is not a member can't get there... and if a member does follow your link, it sometimes will do funny things to their shopping cart.  :-[

That said... When I was the COG Merchandise guy, I sold a LOT of them. They are good for keep dust, the morning dew and light rain off your bike. Not really a winter cover. They fit the standard sized windshield and the taller ones too, but some custom wider shields not so much. They pack really small so they are easy to carry with you where-ever you go.

If you do need a custom size one for an over-sized windshield, just contact the people at TourKing, nice folks, very helpful.
<--- is there any mechanism in place to deal with a non- productive, antagonistic, former non- member such as this?

AH, sorry Dave!  :o

Thanks for the great info tho..being in Louisiana, don't need a "winter" cover. Below freezing here is 45..... :nananana:

Yea, that is EXACTLY what I need, keep rain off, morning dew, dust, etc...

I'll order one this week!  Thanks again!!   :)

I didn't even realize there was a COG store... gotta go exploring!

I got mine from Tour King.  In fact, I've gotten two of them and bought a third for my son.  There are two sizes for the C10 - the smaller one tucks over the back of the seat or the backrest, and the larger one extends over a trunk.  Don't get the larger one if you're not running a trunk!  They both have pockets for the windshield and it works pretty well over a fairly wide variety of windshields.

It covers a triangle which keeps your dash and seat dry, even in a fairly intense rain.  It stretches tight so it generally won't sag down to your seat.  It's absolutely perfect for keeping the dew off at night.  It dries out very quickly when you hang it up.  When you leave it wadded up in a wet ball instead, it'll still be wet when you remember to take it out again.  DAMHIK

I have one. It's really great for travel and such. But IIRC, there is three different sizes. All to fit the Concours. But with different levels to protect the bike and farkles. I sold quite a few of them at last years national rally.

I'm curious - if it's a members-only store, why are there separate prices for members and non-members?

Thanks,
Rick.

Lets just say it is one of those endearing quirks of the COGMOS system we love so much.  :-[

Honestly... When I set up the store, the option was there and we considered opening the store for all. But the Bean Counter, who has to fill out the tax forms thought that selling to the general public (and making a profit) might be a bad thing as far as our tax-exempt status. At the very least, it would have been more work, we'd have to separate order/$$$ by member and non-member to report on income. So, it was decided that the store would just be for member and we try to price the merchandise at a break even point. We consider it a member benefit.

There is a store in CafePress with some different COG branded merchandise. Keeping that separate makes the bean counting easier.

Dave, I thought maybe you might want to take back merchandising czar position. You (like Sue) were soooooooo good at it. Think how smooth the transition it would be. A quick trip over with the pick up to drop off the merchandise, and your back in business.  ::)

All kidding aside. Thanks for all the time you did put in during and since in regards to the COG store. I for one really appreciate all that you both (Sue also) have done for COG and the store itself. Lord knows I've frequented it enough between both your and Sue's tenure. That I probably have just about every (guy type) item in the store. Heck, I even have some items that are not even available it the store. (thanks for ordering it for me Sue)  So again, thanks!  :c017:

I have met Bob, good guy. With over 5k posts, Im expecting him to follow up with "additional" information.

But that does not mean that I wont give him so grief for it from time to time.

I kind of consider COG my Barber shop, like from the movie Grand Torino....since most of you guys are old as hell :nananana:

That has to be the best analogy that I've heard yet. Probably the perfect analogy. Excellent!    :beerchug:


Can I use that?    :)
