While down at the LBS I mentioned to the owner my intention of putting my bike on a rack behind my motorhome to take back and forth to Florida several times this upcoming winter. The owner suggested I cover the bike. I asked if he sold covers and he said no, which adds credibility to his advise. He said it will protect the bearigs etc. and a cover would hold up well at highway speeds behind such a large vehicle. I thought everything was sealed on my bikes and didn't need protection from the elements as the bikes are ridden in rain without any problems.
The bike will be on a trailer hitch rack behind the motorhome. It's 1100 miles to Florida. Opinions, should I cover the bike? If so what kind of cover should I use and where would I find one?
As a side note, I finally, after five flats this summer, upgraded to Conti Top Touring 2000's. Keeping my fingers crossed!
