When you own a motorbike it makes sense to do everything reasonable to look after it and providing it with a suitable motorbike cover is one of the best ways to preserve its appearance and keep it in top condition.
Some of the top reasons you must have a quality motorbike cover:
Protection from the elements
A motorbike cover will protect your motorbike from the harsh effects of the sun, salt spray, windblown, dust, dirt and sand as well as rain and hail that can cause expensive damage.

that you get a quality cover that’s designed to suit the conditions where you keep your motorbike.
Having a close or snug-fitting motorbike cover will deter many insects and other pests that may like to sneak under the cover to hide and cause havoc.

It’s important that your motorbike cover has a soft inner lining that is neither metallic nor abrasive, so that it doesn’t scratch the paintwork. A high quality single layered motorbike cover is usually adequate for inside use, but a quality multi-layered motorbike cover is best for outdoor use as long as has the ability to breathe and allow any condensation to escape so mould and mildew will not form.
Waterproof motorbike covers
A fully waterproof motorbike cover will stop moisture from the rain affecting your bike,but it may trap condensation inside, causing problems with mould and rusting as well as the discolouration of your paint and plastics. So a fully breathable, water resistant cover that although it may allow a bit of moisture to get inside will also allow it to quickly dry out quickly once the rain stops and not keep moisture trapped inside.
Close or loose fit covers
Generally the better your motorbike cover fits your particular motorbike the better it will be able to protect your bike as wind can cause a motorbike cover to flap and cause damage to the surfaces.

Petty vandalism where people break or steal lights or mirrors can be drastically reduced with a good quality heavy duty cover as if they can’t see them, they usually are not interested.
There are some very good reasons why you must have a good quality motorbike cover to protect your motorbike from protection from the elements to keeping pests away and reducing the chances of having your bike stolen or vandalized. But always look for a breathable motorbike cover that will not scratch the paintwork.
