Half Bike Cover

I realized the other I have gotten spoiled to having covered parking at work. Moving offices to no covered parking, after parking the black bike with black seats in the sun for 8 hours and over 100 degrees I need to do something. For now I'm putting a towel on the seat when I park. I'm trying to find a small cover for the seat, saddlebags and maybe the tank, do really want a full cover. Has anyone seen such a cover? It not just for the heat, even though it does get hot, I want to protect the bike, especially the saddlebags.

I found one that goes from the handlebars back to rear seat, it was less than 20 bucks and it has that heat deflecting aluminum look. I found it on eBay. Easy to attach and remove. I use it when I've stopped on a trip to eat, etc. Go to JCcycleshade.com. Click image for larger version

I've seen seat covers (Ultimate makes one for their seats) and 1/2 covers like these . . . https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_n...cle+half+Cover. I've never seen any cover that does just seat or tank and saddlebags.

I have a Nelson Rigg half cover like the one described above. Bought it for the same reason. Works great!
