Bike cover

Postby Boondoc88@gmail.com » Sun Jun 07, 2015 7:54 am



Hi Folks,
After seeing the UltraGuard 1/2 cover prize for this month I felt compelled to let riders know about the Aerostich Ultra light bike cover.
I have been using their large cover for over 10 years to cover everything from motorcycles to lawn equipment to snowmobiles, etc.
It is extremely durable and packs into it's own case slightly larger than your hand.
Invaluable weather protection in a very small package and great for keeping everything under wraps during overnight parking.

Didn't think it was possible to have more guts than a Vietnam Vet :-)

I concur about all vets.

The only trouble with the bike covers, is that the sun turns them into a tearable waste of fabric. I have to park my 250 outside, and the cover has only lasted two years with the sun bleaching the colour, and the material 'rotting' from the action of the sun. I do not want to spend a lot of dollars on a cover.

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.

Kids got me a full cover from Wally-mart years ago for less than $40 bucks.Fits in a bag about the size of a football and it's still going.Saying all that though our sun isn't nearly as strong as the Southern States and it only gets used when I'm on holidays or on the rare occasion that I ride it to work.For $40 though you could buy a new one every year.
If I'da known it would last this long,I'da taken better care of it.

That's a common problem especially with synthetic fabrics - UV light from the sun degrades them, weakening the fibers. You can get a waterproofing spray that contains a UV barrier that will help prevent this: http://www.amazon.com/Nikwax-Solar-Proo ... ingdocs-20
