Outdoor bike cover
What do you use if any and what size
I got the Oxford Aquatex Medium Motorcycle Cover (CV202) for mine and it fits perfectly. I can't rate it yet but it is extremely light and might be prone to flapping in any wind but I am only using it in the garage to keep any dust and the like off the bike. If i was keeping it outside all year I would think something heavier would be needed??? It was £23 from Ghostbikes online.
+1 for the Oxford
Is yours outside hitch?
I have had two from two wheel junkie but the shop has shut now and one of them has split
They are thin but lasted really well
I've had the Oxford Aquatex for quite a few years now, used it for trips away and it keeps bike dry. Seems excellent quality. Never kept a bike outside so not sure if you'd need a heavier duty one for winter?!?
+2 for the Oxford ones. Sadly my blade has to live outside at my house (for now, I'm working on a kitchen storage option!). I had my 600 under this cover for 3 years, and now the blade. Been great - no water gets through, good fit for a sportsbike (not too much flappage). It's just starting to give up the ghost in places - couple of tears around the footpegs and the holes through which you pass a locking chain.
My only gripe with it is that it seems to attract the local stray cats which spray all over it - fuggin reeks! Still, i suppose its a theft deterrent
There's a thread called "Best bike cover" with excellent info. I can't paste link from my phone but it should come up in the search box. You'll see pics of my 'free' mattress plastic.
I got an Oxford Stormex cover from Revzilla for about $80. I got the Large and it is too big for the Repsol, but it only goes over the bike in the winter, in my garage. I don't leave my bikes outside. So really, I am no help here mate.
Just a +1 for the Oxford.
I've got a Stormex too. The tape on the seams are rubbish because they unstick, but it's waterproof despite. My bike's outside 24/7/365. Good quality cover is the Stormex.
Never had an issue with the seams, but mine only goes on in the garage as a dust cover more than anything else.
Right so I have got to get a stormtex
And are we all agreed on a medium?
My bike is under a part cover like a carport but if the wind is strong it does blow the rain in sometimes
Thanks for everyone’s help
I've just checked mine bazza but can't find the size on it....I think it said Sportsbike size on the package front?!? Here's a link to it and the sizing is there.
Although the newer aquatex seem to have more sizes.
Think mine was medium...loads of room underneath for other covers etc if needed.
I got the sportsbike size in the black indoor cover too and it's well tight...should have gone up a size in that if anyone else is looking at that type!
Scary how that blue OXFORD writing is just floating in mid air
What the @@@@ are you smoking
I don't get that!?!
I was in the van and not concentrating on the text
It's a camouflage cover and so can't be seen except for the lettering
Ha ha ha boom boom
