I don't know where you guys live that you are more worried about a cover to keep people from stealing things rather than keep you ass dry.
I'm not so much worried about someone stealing my bike (I have insurance for that), as I am worried someone is going to sit on the bike and maybe tip it over. Then I'm looking at cosmetic damage, and I'm out my deductible for the repairs. Or someone will plop their kid on the seat and he/she/it decides to snap off my mirror because, hey, shiny! Minor annoyances, really, but I'll avoid them if I can.
But you're 100% correct... a dry seat in the morning is nice.
That's probably half the reason I use a cover.
