Need to get a dusk cover for my bike. It's garage kept but need something to keep the dusk off. Don't want scratches and don't want it to cost an arm & a leg. Thanx in advance.

Since you and I share the same tastes in scooters and keep them garaged I use an old bed sheet to drape over it to keep the dust off also easy to remove way cheaper than a HD cover which can be a bitch to install.

Some nice soft and fluffy beach towels will do the trip. You can use clothespins to hold them together as well if you like.

Leonm47: Pay no attention to the nonsense, it's what we do best here.
I bought a $21 large bike cover at Walmart. It's quite good enough for garage use. I do prefer using a King size sheet over the bike. Easy on off.

I used to use a flannel sheet. For my current bike I use my Guardian. Works good anywhere.

Weird thing though, I keep finding mouse turds under the bike when ever I cover it in the garage but not on the bike. I pulled the seat and the fairing a couple times and never saw any traces (poop).

Try the link below. I use mine all the time, works really good on hot days, keeps the seat and fairing out of the sun. Will keep some dust of teh inner fairing.

The turds verify their presence. I would set a couple of traps, baited with peanut butter, under the bike and wad up unscented Bounce dryer sheets and stuff 'em in your exhaust and lay another one or three around the engine case, somewhere on the fairing, under the seat, etc., etc.

I don't have any mice around this time of year but when the weather cools I find my traps sometimes get a real workout.

I have a lightweight shipping cover, that I got from our local HD dealer. Ain't much, but it does it's job. Plus it was free. I only use it occasionally.

Could always go to Home depot and spend $4.00 on a sheet of painters plastic its basicly the same as the interior of my Indoor/outdoor Harley Davidson Cover.

I never thought of it before, but a painter's dropcloth (the real cloth kind) would be a good cover. A 6'x9' is $11 @ Home Depot. Larger sizes available.
