    Can anyone recommend a good waterproof outdoor cover that will go over the CT with the Honda panniers and top box on the bike?

    Cheers,
    Dom.

    Hi Dom,
    I keep my CT in a garage but a mate also has a Crosstourer that's kept outside and he bought an Oxford Aquatex in the XL size. It fits perfectly over the bike with all the Honda luggage fitted  :152:

    Good call Gary545, would it be worth taking a cover abroad to keep bike dry and out of immediate sight or is it to big and heavy an item to carry.  :027:

    I would say taking one on tour is a good idea.
    The Oxford Aquatex folds up quite flat and could easily be stored in a pannier  :028:
