I had a simple chore: to keep avoid having everything damaged by water. My wife and I live in rainy Olympia, Washington, where rain is more typical than bikes. Which is why us dwellers in rain could use all the assistance available when it comes to protecting our stuff from torrents of water. And I have many things that need protecting: a car, a boat, and a lawn mower. To take care of them I use custom canvas polaris truck seat covers to stop moisture from ruining my valuables.
Keep You ATVs Safe: Snap-On Covers
These canvasses do a fine job at keeping stuff protected, and they are more pliable than an awning. Too bad all that stuff can't fit underneath my patio area. They neatly fold up when I don't need them.
The deluges will go on but at least there is some affordable protection.
