Bike cover for a K75 RT?
« on: September 13, 2020, 07:26:32 PM »
I am selling a K75 RT to a friend that does not have a garage to store it. Can anybody recommend a good fitting bike cover that is water proof?

Thanks

It also needs to be breathable otherwise condensation forms under the cover causing problems. It's probably not a problem where you live but a mate had a cover bake itself onto his paintwork.

If keeping a bike outside for a while, any car cover does well. This is an up-cycle cover from a C5 Vette, when I got a new tech cover for the car. Works great and if you check the Thrift stores or Free Stuff on Craigslist, car covers can often be found for a song. Bungee's keep it from blowing away, and it fit's so baggy, it's impossible to tell what's underneath. Good Luck.
