(joke) If you are going to park your bike outside, a cover that says Honda Goldwing would be a good idea!!! :D

Yes, you got the right forum. I think (???) quite a while back there was some discussion of covers?

If this is all you need one for, I'd say just use a queen/king size sheet. It'll do just as good.

Check out WWW.exigentbikecovers.com . I bought one for my Fatboy and one for my son's Sportster. We used them on a two week trip this summer and they worked great. They are waterproof and compact and priced right. We covered both bikes with these black covers, cabled them together , and turned on my alarm. No problems.

I went with the H-D cover for my touring bike. I got one without the logo. Didn't need to advertise what was under the cover. If you go to the parts section of Chicago's H-D dealer, you can order them at 20% off.

Besides the covers I bought from Exigent, I had already tried the H-D cover. It's a good cover but doesn't fold up nearly as small as the Exigent. It takes up almost my whole bag on one side.

I bought the HD storm one that costs too much (-20% of course). I figured that it should take anything that comes it's way plus it looked extremely strudy. Now since I bought it 2 years ago I've actually used it 0 times outdoors. It's alot easier to just cover the seat :)

I agree with Straydog and the sheets. If you just want to cover it in the garage why bother taking the time to nicely fit the bike cover and then later stuff it into a sack? Just throw a sheet over it.

Bought an HD cover two years ago - used it religiously for, oh...two nights, and then said screw it... easier to use a motel towel to dry off the seat and ride in the mornings. That's when I don't back it into the motel room at night, of course.

I've used the Exigent for several years now. It's a great cover. Covers well, dries quickly, folds up small. Great for trips
