bike cover anyone?
« on: July 27, 2013, 10:34:48 am »
need to cover the bike when working on other things (4 wheels..) in garage. Any recommendations for a dust cover that will fit well? as in garage no need to be waterproof - the one that fitted my Sprint GT does not fit the trophy.
Trophy SE (blue), Street Triple (Orange!!) & Fazer 600 (black).

In the garage I just use a lightweight sheet. But When I had the victory Vegas I bought the biggest "Held" cruiser cover from Get Geared Leeds.

That fits over the Trophy really well and protects it plus waterproof. But light enough to be a good general cover aswell.

Whatever you use - on the SE model be CAREFUL,
as the radio aerial can get damaged if you drag a sheet etc over the top of it  :138:

I have an Oxford Dormex cover in large to go over the bike as a dust sheet in my garage.

Coconut is right about being careful with the radio aerial.

I don't use the radio much so I have replaced the standard long whip aerial with a much shorter, aluminium 'bee sting' one.

No problem with the cover now..

Keep the Mrs out of the shed, and sneak a queen sized fitted sheet out of the linen press.  :017: :008:
