Quality bike cover

does anyone have suggestions? I've used the walmart brand car cover and they were useless, suspect the bike cover is the same way. Made of very thin material and everything leaked through including dirt/water and sunshine. I'd like something that will keep out moisture and UV when parked outside, price not a concern I mean how expensive can a good one be.

basement -

I have a Coverite in the XL size. It gives complete coverage to the ground and fits over the bags. It was about $30 at the brick and mortar Cycle Gear.

It gives good protection and stuffs easily into a plastic grocery bag size package. Nothing really special about it; kind of a commodity item. Dowco makes similar.

Nelson Rigg has some really nice covers.

Also have one of those heavy papery type covers that I got at Pep Boys. It was pretty spendy, north of $50, and not worth it. Works very well, but it's bulky and hard to deal with.
