Makes me glad to have a parking spot in an underground parkade, shared between two bikes and a classic mini.Thanks for caring .
I live in an Artscape art studio complex that is LEED Certified , which means no motor vehicles allowed on the property. Heck I even have to hide my solvents and sprays for the Norton in a sealed tub so they don't see them during the annual inspection. They gave one of my neighbours grief for painting in oil paints vs. acrylics , so she moved out . I use acrylics .
Walridge motors here in London , Ont. has just sold me something called " The Bike Bag " to help. It's not a cover but an actual thick big plastic clear bag. I will have to shuffle the bike somehow into it , bungee cord up the opening as per instructions , then fit a final bike cover on top of it . The one I like is XYZCTM , available from Amazon , comes in black top and orange sides. Previously I had used pure black covers and the bike was knocked over twice at night in dark winter because of this. I now use 2 cone bottomed base poles ( filled with cement for stability ) painted day glow fluorescent (acrylic of course ) paint , on each end . The city leaves me alone and no more clowns making 3 point turns have hit it in years now.
That's my strategy for this winter , I'll pull the tank and seat and battery first , likely tomorrow.
