Outdoor Motorbike Cover – BMW GS Adventure
Outdoor Motorcycle Cover for a BMW GS Adventure Motorcycle: Review
Finding an indoor or outdoor motorbike cover which will fit a BMW GS Adventure motorcycle or just a BMW GS is very hard work in my opinion. Particularly when you are buying an XL motorcycle cover off the shelf in the hope that it will cover the extent of your large bike, its top box, any additional panniers and its mirrors. It just won’t work usually.
So recently I have found an excellent quality motorbike cover for my new BMW GS Adventure and it is by far the best I have ever found for an adventure motorcycle. It was via Prestige Motorcycle Covers which I found one Saturday when I was looking through the web. I went for a black and green design which you can see in the post image.
They seem to provide the most stylish custom made semi-fitted outdoor motorbike covers you can buy on the market today, plus they are available for a range of motorbikes: Scooters, Adventure, Enduro, Trial, Trail, Retro, Cruisers & Sports Bikes.
What happens with them is you provide them with 5 measurements for your bike, you then select the colour (10 to choose from) and material you want and then they tailor make a motorcycle cover specific for your bike (indoor or outdoor) and then they send it to you in the post free of charge.
The material they use is waterproof and breathable, the design of the motorcycle cover means you have additional straps within the design so you can stop any flapping, it is a snug fit, plus the quality of the end product means that it will last for a long time.
Unfortunately my bike sits on the pavement every night as we don’t have a garage and it has to survive the UK winter and lots of salty sea air. So the new outdoor motorcycle cover means it is well covered during the day and night, it is out of sight, it is protected from the elements and it doesn’t draw any attention to it.
In the past I have had covers which only just go over the top box at the back but the cover never seemed to stretch further past the seat. So you were squeezing a cover on, it wasn’t doing the job and if you buy a universal large motorcycle cover off the shelf I’m sorry but you aren’t getting something which fits well for your motorbike.
The cost was very reasonable too. You are paying about £20-£30 more for the cover compared to other suppliers of off the shelf products, but you are guaranteed a quality motorcycle cover from a professional team. In total I paid £80 for something which was custom made and I am very happy, knowing that this motorcycle cover will look after the BMW GS for years to come.
