I went to Myrtle Beach for bike week, which was nothing but rain. I used this cover for the 1st time. I put it on the bike for three days. 1st it's not even close to being rain resistant, here is what else I found when I took it off: Even though it allows the rain to go through it, it stops the driving rain and the bike was wet but not soaked. The worst part of was all was the cotton undersides for the trunk and windshield was nothing but mold. After looking at the cleaning instructions it cannot go into a washing machine and so it looks like this cover did not even last three days!!!
