So has anyone devised a cover that keeps you dry and warm in bad weather? I'm thinking something like a canoe spray deck utilising stretch neoprene to provide a snuggish fit round your shoulders. 😉

Use your tonneau on your lap back to front with the zip undone by 18” to allow for the gear stick & hand brake to protrude. It tucks in each side and sits snugly under the steering wheel.

As for a canoe type spray deck the steering wheel sits too high to allow that

Just use normal tonneau. Fiddle with the zippers and lift the dots until you get it right.

Not to mention the occasional need to see the instruments.

You can not get any wetter than wet . You will get used to it and learn to grin when you climb out of your mog with your trousers wet just like you did not reach the loo in time wave and smile at people they are unable to work you out . I was bringing the mog back home looked at the sky " will it or won't it . Typical 1/2 way back him up there turned the taps on FULL HOLE . Water running over the ton cover into my crotch and down my face , by the time I got home soaked to the skin and one huge skid on a roundabout , lucky no cars at the time . It took a few weeks to dry everything out INCLUDING ME .

I carry vortex rain gear for that possibility. Get out slip the pants over whatever I am wearing, put on the upper shell and get on with the slower drive.

I have ridden two wheels for over 40 years.... people often ask, "what do you do when it rains".... I answer, "get wet"
