    Bike covers

    Some drunk, homless or drunk homless FUCK stole the cover off my bike before i had a chance to bring it into my fenced in back yard tonight.... so i'm in the market

    Anyone have any prefferences or know of any current deals? I just want somethin that'll last in the sun but won't cost me an arm & a leg. I'm a "best bang for the buck" kinda guy.

    Gonna take a look on newenough & see what they got.

    gotta fit your average sized sportbike... If i find a good enough deal I might get two so i can cover up my ex500 as well.

    Mine's one of those $20 deals from Walmart (man I shop there a lot), but it has withstood one and a half summers so far, and two different bikes.

    I bought one of the cheaper ones, and it faded in the sun in less than a year. Ended up buying a Dowco Guardian after that from Brockton Cycle.... sits in the sun every day now for over a year and still looks new!

    get a good vented one. i think mine's a dowco? or some shit. had it for five years and 4 bikes. works wicked pissa. 75 bucks i think. it has two reinforced holes at the bottom i run a bike lock through to keep it from being stolen. i'll keep my eye out for bums using a bike cover as a jacket or tent.

    Bike covers

    Had a Dowco and noticed it became less water resistant over the years, camp dry helped that but then it got brittle in the sun. It was replaced with the 19$ walmart special and it works well. I like that it has the bungie cord at the bottom to keep it on the bike too.

    Don't get anything bigger then L btw, I think the XL would prolly cover your bimmer.
