waterproof bike cover

I am looking for a waterproof fabric bike cover to put on my bike when it is on my hitch rack while traveling. I am having a hard time finding such a thing. Anyone have some direction for me?

Thanks,

You might also check into motorcycle covers- perhaps more common.

More common than a tarpaulin? I beg to differ.

Try this. 20 bucks, but it's made pretty well and I use them on all my bikes. I'm not sure how well they'll stand up at 60 mph, but for 20 bucks it's worth the try.

Why do you want to cover it?

The flapping parts of it might damage the finish of the bike. And if that's not a concern there's a possibility of it coming off and either getting caught on a car behind you or littering the environment.
