Cover for the Trophy?
« on: January 31, 2016, 09:14:16 pm »
Hi everyone

Does anybody keep their bike outside and if so what cover do you use? We have an Oxford cover for ours but we are looking to buy a bike shelter, a sort of framed cover that can be pegged down like the Storm Protector, does anybody use one of these?

Thanks

Something like this : Motorbike Shelter ( eBay )

I've been using the Dowco Guardian Weatherall Plus for about 2 years, and it works pretty well, but the bike can get wet in a few spots, always including the top box.  Great warranty, and after the seam tape started coming apart, Dowco sent me a new cover.  I now use an Oxford Rainex in damp weather, and the bike is always dry!  Only complaints with the Rainex are: 1) It's a bit heavy & bulky, and 2) There's a plastic grommet on the inside on the cover for a solar charger cable that sits on top of the windscreen.  I'm worried that it might scratch the windscreen, but so far, no issues.  I think a shelter would be great in areas that get more rain than we do in Southern Calif.  You might also try http://www.thebikebarn.net.  Good luck!

Yep Coconut, that's exactly the style we are looking at, however the dimensions of the bike and the shelter means it would just about squeeze in, but not sure that if it is then on its side stand it would still fit width wise. So I was wondering if anybody actually used one.

There are a couple of them here on  The marina so I have made enquiries to find out who they belong to in the hope that we could test our bike out in theirs  :002:

I've wondered why Triumph doesn't make a cover for the Trophy like they have for other models?  It could be specifically designed for the windshield and top box/panniers, etc.   :084:

Perhaps they assume all Trophy owners must also own a garage  :012:

I do have a garage, but this thing is supposed to be a TOURER. So, when I park my baby in front of a motel, I don't want it exposed to the elements.

Can't help with a framed cover suggestion but, Geza Gear http://www.gezagear.com/ make a comprehensive line of covers for most applications. There not shy with their prices but good quality stuff.
