I don't have any pictures because I suck but I brought my 700xx up here to N.C. and tarped it so the inbreeds that live in a 2000 foot radius wouldn't shop it out of the back of my truck before I hustled it to my storage unit.

Well, upon unwrapping it at the storage unit I got to see what 12 hours of wind buffeting tarp on my plastic's finish. Ugh. Whatever shines was there now looks like a dull cross hatch pattern.

I'm not pissed, I mean I didn't buy this thing to keep it showroom pretty, but I was a little let down to see it.

Anyway, this may be obvious to most of you but it somehow escaped me.

:eek:hno:

Did the same thing when I moved from TN to here but it was my road bike and lucky me that I check the bike on the first fill up and noticed it so I removed the tarp.

Does anyone know if you'll have the same results if you cover it with a specific high-quality ATV cover while transporting?

Thanks

Pretty much any material will cause this, Even the fuzzy inner covers will eventually wear through. Best just not cover em while transporting.

oh yeah, and no one could touch me on the drag strip. about 6 4wheeler lengths on a honda 450er and 1.5 4wheeler lenghts on a hoped up yamahamer 450r (slip on exhaust, hot cam, 100lb dude). Didnt get a chance to drag a 700 raptor as they were all stuckup in the mud out in the trails (those things are a joke IMO). Nothing beats a Honda.:hey:

Well that doesn't give me any warm and fuzzy feelings knowing my machine is sitting outside at home with a cover on it and the winter winds blowing on it while I'm over here for 4 months. Hopefully the damage won't be too bad when I get back.

No, You should be okay. 5mph winds in your backyard is totally different than 80mph winds on the interstate.
