Im leavin for the Carolinas and the 999 will be in tow and I cant find the bike cover. I think it went out with the trash.

Has anyone got any bright ideas that have worked for them for covering the bike for a unenclosed trailer ride?
Something more than Ducttape and old bedsheets .

Re: Spur of the moment cover. (Busamouse)

Better to trailer it uncoverd. The cover slapping against the paint does a lot more damage than snow, rain, salt

Re: (Busamouse)

I have got just the thing. The company is called Geza Gear and they make motorcycle covers that are totally waterproof and good at speeds up to 70 mph. I have them for my bikes and they work great. They stretch tightly over the bike so they don't flap around at all. The surface that touchs the bike is like Polartec fleece so it wont scratch your paint. They have a website which I think is http://www.gezagear.com. Check them out!

Re: (Busamouse)

When I transported a friends MH900e, we wrapped it up in a couple old comforters, and used duct-tape (on the comforter) to secure it to various parts of the bike. Once the comforter was snugly secured to the bike, we put a rain-cover on.

When he got the bike, I didnt hear any "Why are there scratches everywhere", or anything like that. The comforter takes the shock of the cover wapping against things, and protects the bike from rocks and other road-based debris. Another idea that I use on my race-trailer, is take a peice of maple-ply, and screw it to the front rails of your trailer, so it sticks up in the air. Re-enforce it with some steel strips, or a couple 2x4's. It drags the wind a bit, but keeps the spray + rocks from the back of your vehicle from blasting the crap out of your bike.

Biggest thing is throwing sand/rocks off the road onto the trailer/bike. Good mudflaps solve that. Else saranwrap the front fairing/forks as preventive measure.
