Dust cover for tiger explorer
« on: November 09, 2019, 02:57:56 PM »
Folks I was looking a soft lined cover to throw over the bike as it sits in the garage all winter. The garage itself can get quite dusty so anything that can prevent the dust from lying on top of the bike is a bonus. Had a look on amazon etc but not really sure what size or type to order. Has anyone any recommendations of one to order? Thanks in advance and apologies if the question has been asked before.
Thanks Gary

 I am using a VCI-bag with an anti-corrosion layer inside. The bag itself is airtight and is sealed with a zipper of sorts. VCI: Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor. The bag comes in three different sizes. I am very happy with it.  I bought it through a Norwegian MC magazine, but guess you can get them everywhere.
Anyway, check the link beliw.

I've got an XL Nelson Riggs from Amazon that I've used for winter storage in my garage for the past 6 or 7 years. It does a great job of keeping wood working dust off old TEX. It fits perfectly well over the OE panniers and a 55 liter Givi top case, and didn't break the bank buying it...

That Nelson-Rigg cover looked nice, and since you were nice enough to provide the link, I ordered one.

I might even use it......if I ever get the TEX clean.

My usual solution for dust is to splash some mud on it.  Then nobody notices the dust.
