water repellent covers

Recommended Posts

Hi, just bought a Motrax Deluxe cover for the VFR and while it does a fantastic job keeping the rain out, its terrible during cold days at letting the condensation out. The problem is a dry night and a drenched bike in the morning with poor start!!!!

Was browsing the net and not sure now whether a water repellent cover would be better than a water proof one! Does this make any sense or is it just a money making phrase?

Anyone tried the Tyvek covers?

Would appreciate any views!! Thanks!

Hi turugalea

Not too sure about the cover to be honest.... I know some have the technology to wick moisture buildup away from the underside of the cover so you might be able to find something.

Welcome to the forum by the way!!! Drop in to the Newbie section and introduce yourself!! :D :D

My pops had a goretex cover which he swore by. Sorry I can't remember the name. I'm sure if you googled 'goretex motorcycle cover' it'd come up! Pricey though as I recall.

thanks guys. I will try the easier option of trying the stormex cover! I had a really simple cover when I had the Hornet, seemed to be paper thin. Can't recall the name. Had to sell the Hornet as went to Oz for 2 years and now back to biking.

I guess the best bet to beat the condensation is a garage......!
