Trailer question

Would it be possible to trailer the bike with a bike cover on the bike?

Good point fast. So, I am looking at an open trailer. What if it rains and such. Very likely since I am leaving through Florida to get to NC. Probably will rain like a bitch! Is there another protective thing I can do like saran wrap or something to protect from the elements? I mean, it does not have to be pretty. lol.

It will be OK in the rain. Hell, I've even heard of people riding in the rain.

AHAHAAAAAAAAAAA

The only thing you need to worry about is chit falling off, or people messing with your chit when you park at the hotel.

Enclosed FTW

I'm sure a cover would be fine if you put a soft blanket between it and the bike and then use some bungies to hold it better. It sucks to kick all the road grime onto your bike from your tow vehicle.

Cover won't make it. I tried it and the wind will destroy it.

A standard cover will not work - wind will blow it off. If you want to trailer with a cover, this is a proven solution:
