Check out your local outdoor stores for large ATV covers. Often the big ones will fit for under $40.

Thanks!That's just the kind of suggestion I was looking for-seems kind of obvious when it's right in front of you,but I would never have thought of that.

I see you're up in the White Mountains-I love it up there,I try to get in two or three camping trips a year,usually at Lafayette or sometimes White Lake State Park.I'll keep my eyes open for Urals next time I'm up there.

Two treatments a year work well to keep the rust away.

WallyWorld,huh?There's one of those not far from me,I'll have to take a run out there and see what they have.Thankyou

Just relax and let it happen. You'll be happy when you do.
