Harley cover for towing.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a cover for my Harley Dyna that will protect it on the lift in back of our coach yet not take the paint off from the wind?
Thanks. I'm sick of cleaning it every time we put it on the coach and travel.

Keep cleaning it. I have never heard of a cover guaranteed to not damage paint while moving.
Happy Glamping.

I agree, the cover I had was like sandpaper to my paint to my little Honda , I just ended up throwing it in the garbage. I did a good wax job, which helped to make it easer to clean

I've seen car covers in high end catalogs that Griot's that have cotton on the inside. Haven't ever seen one for a bike, but then I've never looked. That said, if it doesn't have cotton on the inside I'd pass because pretty much any synthetic will scratch the paint. What you might do if you go shopping is take something that's painted with you to see if the cover scratches it. Just this feeble brain working overtime in the middle of the night.

I would think you could wrap it first with a moving blanket, tape it on tight, (tape on the moving blanket) then put the cover on, use tape or bungies to keep the blowing around and flopping to a minimal amount?
It might just be easier to wash it? Rail!

HydroLife has a cover that has a cage with a cover around it, like a tent, so that the cover doesn’t damage the paint on a bike. I have never seen one but did see it on their website.
