This is interesting, I've traveled 100's of thousands of miles and never covered a bike. Just scrape/wipe the frost/dew off. As for as theft, I just thought they only stole HD’s and sport bikes. Never had a bike messed with in all my years. I do carry a tarp, for roadside repairs and whatever. From reading all the post maybe I should cover it, there are some interesting replies. My friend with a HD covers it with a Honda cover so people won’t steal it,.
