Waterproof Cover

I just got my hands on a 2012 black Vision Tour. Nice bike, all shiny and pretty and I want to keep it that way. I just have a carport and its humid with lots of morning dew down here in Florida.

I've looked on this forum for alternatives to the pricey cover that Victory sells through the dealer or their online store. So far the only thing I can find that fits (according to the catalogue page) is a Nelson-Rigg 3xxx weatherproof model.

Anyone come up with a better solution?

Thanks
Cuzz

The half cover or full. Will keep my eye out. I spent the extra on the 1/2 cover, rolling the dice. I will say it us very nice and custom fit to the front end with 4 straps to attach to the shifter brake and passenger foot rest. I won't say it's well worth the money but it does look good on the bike. Stayed in place 20mph+ winds at work. Will take a pic of it on the bike if your interested

Cover

I'm using a large Geza cover. Is a great product. Stands up very well to very windy conditions as it stretches over the bike. Just dont let it ouch the pipes when hot!

I have a Vision cover that I have never used... sell for $125 and you can pick it up in Apopka or I may be talked into delivery if I knew where.

Hi Cuss
You might want to edit you phone number off your posting and send a private message to Howard.

This is the (WWW) internet and anyone can see you posting and number. Just a thought. KEN
