Motorcycle Cover

I just purchased a 2010 Kawasaki Ninja 250, and I want to protect it during the day. Does anyone know of a good motorcycle cover that can handle the Texas heat and the thunderstorms?

Thanks in advance.

Dont use CoverMax. I have one to cover my bike when I park it outside overnight at work. The dew seeps right in through the material and bike is all wet every morning.

I'm not sure if they have different models with more rain/water protection.
I sprayed it down with Scotchgaurd this week so I'll see how it works.

Actually, a small fitted sheet for a kids bed fits perfectly around just the top (tail to handlebars) of my bike and is perfect for dust when stored in a garage.

But defenitely not for outdoors.

I bought one from Suzuki. It's great. Handles the rain perfectly, even the Houston sun.. I can actually cover the bike right after riding w/ no problems. Only deal is I spent over 100 on it (mostly because I wanted to cover after riding w/o melting it). In short a good one will cost a bit more than the auto zone piece of cloth.

Come to think of it, I think I still have the cover from my cruiser that I dont use anymore. If you really need one pronto, you can have that one. Might be a bit big for your 250 though, but it should offer some protection.

Thanks for the offer, but you give it to Bigmarky instead of me. I'll check out that one from Suzuki. Paying some extra money is nothing to protect your bike/investment (I don't have a garage or even a covered spot at my apartment complex).

Thanks to everyone for their advice and if someone else knows anything, let me know.

I use this Nelson Rigg half cover which has worked great. Comes with a pouch & strap so you can either look cool wearing it like a pack or strap it around your seat behind you. Pretty cheap & has held up well.
