Default Cover for a Gunner Being Trailered

Hey folks...

I did a search on the site and didn't find very much on Gunner covers.

Does anyone know of a company that makes covers for Gunners... particularly being trailered? I am taking a road trip next month with my '16 Gunner and would rather have it covered on the trailer.

If there isn't a cover specifically for a Victory... does anyone have any recommendations for good generic covers?

I appreciate any help!!!!

Cheers!!!

Mike

Wouldn't the cover just flap around and wear against the paint?

Never cover a bike being hauled on an open trailer. The inevitable flapping of the cover in the wind will damage the paint far more than any stones might cause chips. Cover it when parked for the night for security but not while moving.

G'day,

Likely no one except Polaris makes one specifically for the Gunner, and unlikely it would be safe for trailering. I feel like such a thing exists, though the motorcycle is designed to go down the road at highway speed. I don't think you'll hurt it.

If its not a enclosed trailer Don't cover it. When you get to wear your going just wash it and ride

Default Thanks!!!

Thanks everyone for the advice... I hadn't thought about the flapping of the cover.
It will be trailered uncovered.

I appreciate it!!!

Cheers!
