lightweight travel cover
« on: April 15, 2020, 06:36:17 pm »
hi all,

looking for a lightweight travel cover...just something to keep the bike covered at night and keep the seat/cockpit dry if it rains, but also something that packs down really small and light.

suggestions?

thanks in advance,
JA

I have the Nelson Rigg 1/2 cover Size large.  It keeps the dew off, and will actually cover the back of the bike, but in the photo I had moved it to access the cooler ;)   And for the record this photo is from 2018, so that TP in the side pocket was pandemic.

still use my C10 cover,was built for the bike..(and it still works on the C14, very nicely..) ;  a free prize from my first RWTW rally back in?.. every once in a while, when I wash my Stich, I toss it in, and it become "proofed again.. fit's the C14 nice, and rolls up in a pack the size of  beer can.. love it.. ask the guys that sell the merchandise to bring it back, and keep it being sold. Light weight, built to endure, and it rolls up small.. really small...and doesn't act as a "sail" that will tip the bike over in winds.. well, as long as you install it correctly....
Robust covers, I will say, will flip the bike on it's side in short order in 30 mph winds..
