5 All-Weather Motorcycle Covers

Protect your machine from the elements

Whether you’re looking to protect your motorcycle from the elements or you simply want to keep the dust off your ride when it’s parked in the garage, having a decent cover around will help keep your pride and joy clean and safe with minimal hassle.

A motorcycle cover doesn’t have to be as simple as it sounds. Most of them are designed to cover the entire bike, and have built-in security features such as access ports for cable locks; some can even house a stand-alone alarm system. The materials used to construct the latest generation of motorcycle wraps provide all-season armor against even the harshest weather. Even damaging UV rays are no match for these covers. Considering the fairly low price of one of these items, it doesn’t make sense not to have one. If you don’t believe us, read on and see for yourself.

Harley-Davidson Indoor/Outdoor Motorcycle Cover

Sometimes you want to cover your bike for the night but you still want to let people know what kind of heat you’re packing underneath.


Harley-Davidson’s heavy-duty cover is perfect for that job as it is constructed from diamond-pattern 300-denier fade-resistant polyester, and features that unmistakable orange/black color scheme and H-D graphics that we all know and love.

Weather-shielded vents at the top allow for air circulation, and the cover skirt features front and rear adjustable drawstrings to keep the whole cover tight around your bike. There is a convenient opening near the front wheel for a security chain or cable to be used when the cover is on. An optional cover alarm is also available for added security.

The new Defender Extreme cover from Nelson-Rigg features their UltraMax Fabric—a material that has been in the engineering and design process now for 3 years.


The final product is a top-of-the-line, all-weather motorcycle cover that offers maximum UV protection, air circulation and an inner heat resistant material that allows a bike with a warm exhaust to be covered without the worry of melting the cover. Nelson-Rigg believes their covers are manufactured with the highest quality workmanship, and they stand behind their product with a lifetime warranty that includes against fading, which is an industry first. They’ll even throw in a free compression bag, which is good enough to seal the deal.

Tourmaster Elite Motorcycle Cover

Made from 100-percent-waterproof material (high-quality 300-denier polyester), the Elite cover from Tourmaster features double-stitched and tapered seams for durability, and is fully vented to allow for a more stable environment for your bike when covered.


Aluminized heat panels help protect the cover from parts related to your bike’s exhaust pipes and muffler, which can stay hot for a while after a ride. An elasticized bottom has a quick-release lower strap that helps when securing the cover, and a reinforced buttonhole at the front wheel section allows for use of a locking device of your choosing. The Elite is available in four sizes M–XXL, so no matter what make/model of motorcycle you need covered and protected from the elements, the Tourmaster Elite will fit your bike.

Designed for everyday outdoor use, this cover even boasts an industry-leading lifetime warranty. That alone should help you sleep better at night.


The installation process with this cover is also a little easier than with other traditional covers thanks to its unique rear zipper location. It will allow access to saddlebags or other storage areas without having to completely remove the cover. ClimaShield Plus technology is used to help protect against rain, mildew, and fading caused by the sun’s harmful UV rays.

Quictent Heavy-Duty Motorcycle Shelter Shed

Quictent Heavy-Duty Motorcycle Shelter Shed

Available in two sizes—small and large, with the latter being the one we’re interested in—the Quictent offers a little more room than your typical motorcycle cover.


It still provides full-coverage protection from the elements, yet makes for more of a true shelter, as it comes complete with an interior steel frame.

The 135.8 x 53.9 x 74.8-inch outer length, 53.9-inch outer width, and 74.8-inch outer height provides ample room for your bike, and the 600-denier oxford fabric will keep all of nature’s harmful elements far away from your motorcycle’s surface. The cover includes a TSA code lock for security, as well as a handy carry bag for easy transportation.
