Re: Ebay Motorcycle Cover?

I bought one. They are very light weight. They are some what water resisant. I do use mine outside but I have to tie it down or the wind will blow it off. Wnen it rains where will be water standing in the low spots. So I guess it's good and bad. It does protect the bike it you don't mind the extra hassel of tieing it down.

Re: Ebay Motorcycle Cover?

I got a lightweight cover from Argos for about 18.00, looks very similar and fits the LT.

Few year ago I had a better one which i picked up at the BMF show, but I'd taken it off during the summer and stored it in the shed where it was eaten by mice. Just didn't use it in the summer because I was out on the bike lots.

I'll try and find a couple of links and edit this post.

Edit - http://www.coveryourbike.co.uk/produ...cat=250&page=1
This is what I got at the BMF for 24.00, not the price on the web. Be worth searching for this. The material was good quality. or wait til may and come down to the show and pick up a bargain.
