Concours get wet when it rains
« on: February 26, 2019, 08:20:05 pm »
 I put up a canopy and parked the bike under it,but the city made me take the canopy down. So maybe I could buy a motorcycle cover to protect the bike from rain. Cycle gear has some,... which one would be good.

Guardian Motorcycle covers are a good brand, you can get them at J&P cycles. I have one of their Weatherall models for my Ultra Classic. It has a nice soft inner lining and a durable waterproof outer lining, a little spendy but long lasting. the cheaper ones don't last that long and for outside not worth it IMO.

I liked cycleshell. I think these types of covers need a sturdy base or else they are too flimsy. But your city may not like them.

So guardian is what I have used too. Some guardian products have a lifetime warranty. As mentioned, guardian is a little pricey for a cover.

+1 on the Guardian cover by Dowco.  Excellent quality and lifetime guarantee.  It's a premium cover worth the extra money.  I had an earlier model cover made by Dowco many years ago.  It lasted for six years before finally disintegrating from the elements (all the while, keeping my old Magna V30 protected).  I had saved my receipts and warranty card and mailed it back to Dowco.   They sent me a new Guardian cover as a replacement, no questions asked.

I used a Guardian on Shoodaben for six months when I was living in a townhouse without a garage. Never a leak, even in a few torrential Florida downpours, and it looks nearly new still. Highly recommended.

Thanks. I am always looking for affordable covers. Guardian covers are expensive.
