Motorbike Covers in Chiang Mai


Recommended Posts

Hi, Folks.

 

I can’t seem to find a decent motorcycle cover. The bike repair shop I used before no longer stocks them and doesn't now where I buy a new one. Big C used to have them, but the only options they have now are massive covers for cars, or smaller ones for scooters. But the small ones are too small and leave half the wheels exposed with a Honda Wave. They also tear like paper. Tesco Lotas say they don't stock them.

I’ve seen a few bikes protected by larger black covers, but haven’t found them any in the shops.

 

Any advice on where to find these is much appreciated.

I ordered mine through Shopee, Paid about 400 Baht for it and had it in 3 days.  Decent enough cover. Top half silver, bottom half black. Just found my receipt, It was for my XMax-300 and ran me 380 Baht, on sale from 485 Baht.

Thanks, Rumak. How dumb am I? I've been looking for meat at a vegan market! The places I never thought to look are the places I should have been looking. I will stop at the next motorcycle dealer I pass and see if they stock covers. Failing that I'll head over to to the McCormick area next week.

the place i suggested has a seperate building just for parts and stuff.  IMO the place to go for honda

parts or accessories.    i saw someone with a cool ramp for getting a cycle up into a pick up,  asked him where he got it and he said  Sangchai Motors.     take a look there for future reference    Kaeownarawat Road , west of Buds Ice cream  (going towards the river)

He is talking about this place: https://goo.gl/maps/pXnBHXoLLBAuVKXH7

The info that he posted above is the Honda Dealer (i think same company) which is 30 meters down the road.

Thank you, Jack 😉 They have a lot of stuff in there looking at the photos, so I'm sure they'll have a selection of covers.

I bought 3 motorbike covers during the last 6 months. 2 got destroyed by my cats, the last one is sturdy enough. Cats sleep, play and fight on and around the bike but it still is intact.

It fits well over my bike even with the transport box mounted.

Ordered on Lazada, would recommend it:

 

฿205.00 -51% | ผ้าคลุมรถมอเตอร์ไซค์ ผ้าคลุมบิ๊กไบค์ ผ้าคลุมจักรยานยนต์ ผ้าคลุมรถ ป้องกันแสง UV ป้องกันน้ำ ป้องกันฝุ่น Motorcycle Covers Waterproof Motorbike Cover XL,XXL,3XL | https://s.lazada.co.th/s.X2n9b

Good find, Schnitzelfritz, and as cheap as chips too 😉

When I put my cover over the bike I secure the bottom eyes by using bungy chords so that it stays taught and the cats in my Condo garage can not climb up it and try and sleep on the bike like they were doing on my seat.

I Run a bungy chord from my front windscreen support to my rear seat backrest in order to create a V shape for the cover in the Middle of the bike.  So far the garage cats are not climbing under the cover or getting on top of it.  The two bikes parked to either side of mine always have paw marks on the seats and tanks from dirty feet waling on the bike as well as hair on the seat from where they lay.

There are three large and noisy dogs that roam around my area, so cats are nowhere to be seen 🙂
