Motorcycle Travel Covers

What’s the difference between a storage cover and a travel cover for your motorcycle?

Travel covers are…
Lightweight Motorcycle Travel Cover

Lightweight Motorcycle Travel Cover

  • Lightweight
  • Storage covers are heavy and bulky compared to travel motorcycle covers. If you plan to use your motorcycle cover on trips, you want the lightest, most compact size you can get. A travel cover gives you all that and more.

  • Compact
  • You only have so much room on your motorcycle to store things. Thankfully, a travel bike cover won’t take up much space. It scrunches down to a compact size for easy storage in your luggage or saddle bags.

  • Convenient
  • Just because you’re away from home doesn’t mean that your motorcycle has to be exposed to the weather 24/7. Slip a lightweight motorcycle cover over it when you stop for a bite to eat or overnight, and your bike will stay safe and protected from the elements.

  • Durable
  • Don’t be fooled by the light weight of a travel motorcycle cover. Travel covers are thinner and lighter than storage covers, but they still provide premium protection. Travel covers keep your bike protected from rain, moisture, and UV rays, just like a storage cover.

  • Secure
  • Integrated grommets with shock bungee cords give you the option to tie down your cover as an extra measure of security and to keep it in place during stormy weather and strong winds. You can also secure a lock through the grommets to protect your bike from being stolen. Think of it as a little extra insurance coverage for your bike.

Simple (and Cheap!) Ways to Prevent Motorcycle Theft

Protect your motorcycle from theft with a lock and cover.

Prevent motorcycle theft with a lock and cover.

A motorcycle cover is a simple, inexpensive way to protect your bike from the elements. Not only that, but your cover can also double as insurance against a stolen motorcycle. Most storage and travel covers come with built-in grommets that allow you to loop a cable through the grommets and secure the cover with a lock.


Couldn’t a thief just slash the cover and steal your bike anyway? Sure, but most thieves are a sucker for easy targets. A cable lock and motorcycle cover both work to slow thieves down. It poses too high a risk of being caught, and most thieves will simply walk away.

Even if a thief does try to steal your bike with a cover and lock, these deterrents will slow them down. The longer it takes them to free your bike from the lock and cover, the greater the chance that someone will spot the thief and stop him in his tracks.

Not only does a cable and lock protect your motorcycle, but it also protects your cover from being stolen and from blowing away in strong winds. The peace of mind that a cover and lock bring are more than worth the investment!
