Bike cover sugestions

I just bought a platform hitch mounted bike rack. I plan to take my bike with me to work and it will need to be outside on the rack at least to and from work and maybe some days while I'm at work. I'm in Ohio, so it's guaranteed to rain regularly. Any suggestions on a cover that I can use to keep the rain and dirt off the bike when I'm driving or when I have to leave it outside for a day? The rack holds the wheels and there is a bar that ratchets down to the frame so I can pull a cover over from the top with no problems.

Thanks!

dunno if they still sell them, but I've seen clear plastic bicycle covers. Its been bout 10yrs since I've seen/used one though. Or just buy a tarp and some bungies.

If you can't find a real bike cover, check at someplace like Home Depot for a barbecue grill cover. I gave my big grill away when my last kid moved out, but the heavy vinyl cover just fits over my bike. You can wrap a bungee or old tube around it to hold it on.
