Guys, I'm looking for an inexpensive cover for my cafe roadster. She doesn't sit outside normally, but this would be for, say, if she had to sit outside overnight and I wanted to keep dew off, etc.. Any recommendations?

Thanks -

Not that cheap, but good

I paid around $100 CAD.

I am now on my second one... after 4 years the stitching rotted out, that was with no garage at all, just tucked halfway under the eaves. The climate here is very rainy, and the bike is used in all seasons. The best feature is the heat proof lower, after a rainy ride you put the cover on when the bike is hot and the heat will dry the bike out.
