A motorcycle can be utilitarian, but it can also be a work of art. Whether you view your bike as something to get you from point A to point B or if you think your bike should be in a showroom you need to think about ways you can protect it!

We are currently in the winter months of the year and this time of year coupled with this weather can wreak havoc on your motorcycle. From snow, sleet, rain, salt from trucks, all these things can bring down the value of your motorcycle and damage it. One of the things I want to do is encourage people to think about ways they can protect their motorcycle from the harsh elements.

I don't know about you, but my motorcycle is one of my favorite things to play with and I want to keep it for a long time. The only way I can do that is to properly care for it. If you are like some people, then your mode of transportation is your motorcycle. If you experience bad weather, are you prepared to countless time time cleaning off the elements? Do you really want to have to sit down on a wet seat? A cover for your motorcycle can be the best piece of gear to buy so you don't have to worry about your bike getting wet.

You may think that you are safe because your motorcycle is in a garage, but not so. Dust and mildew can build up in a garage, also causing damage. To put it mildly, there is only one way to properly protect your motorcycle, and that is to make sure it is covered up.

There are a variety of ways to cover a motorcycle out there. If you own a garage then a simple dust cover can do the trick. Dust is not good for any of your motorcycle parts. Purchasing a dust cover is a small monetary investment on the longevity of your motorcycle.

If your motorcycle is not indoors then a conventional cover will do the trick. The best thing to do is to research the different covers out there and get one fast! The thing is, there are different covers that fit different bikes so you have to pay attention to the details.

Some of my favorite motorcycle covers are made by Pilot Automotive, Nelson-Rigg, and Dowco. With any of these brands you can't go wrong. Some of them are even made so you can put them on your motorcycle after a ride. So you don't have to worry about the head of the pipes melting the cover. Most of them are waterproof and are designed to fit over windshields.

I hope you take my advice. I hope to ride my motorcycle for a long time and the only way I can do that is to take proper care of it. Happy riding!
