I'd just like to ask, how many people cover their bikes while its in the parking lot while at work/school/wherever if its an outdoor parking lot?

I can't decide whether it's worth it or not..

I don't cover mine at work, but I do park it under an overhang for a little protection.

How fast do you want to go?....
Well how much do you want to spend?

I wish I had a cover today. It's supposed to thunderstorm in the afternoon.

Carrying a cover with me everywhere I go sounds like it would be too much of a pain in the arse... If I'm at work and the bike gets rained on then so be it, at least I know i'll be riding it again within a few hours so it doesn't bother me as much as when it gets rained on at home.

honestly, i'm not too worried about the rain, what i got the cover to protect from is the Sun and the bloody Santa Ana winds we get in So Cal ( wind blows from Neveda and its dry, really windy and carry's ALOT of dust)

Better to Sweat than Bleed.

for the winter (because i dont plan on riding in the snow and heavy rain) i plan on leaving the bike in the garage and doing some weatherizing stuff (like gasoline stabalizer and bringing the batting into my closet.)
do u think its needed to put a cover on the bike during that time? or is just leaving it in the garage good enough.

my garage will protect from snow/rain/wind, but not from temperature or spiders/cat/raccoons

Put a cover on it. At least it will keep dust and cat claws off it....

right after posting that i went and looked up several winterizing how-to's.
sounds like the cover is pretty important.
cover, battery tender, fuel stabalizer, put the bike on stands.

from there it seems there is a lot of different ideas depending on the climate your in and how long the storage will be for.

Garage
just got this Nelson-Rigg UV-2000 half cover size medium today.
It's primarily to keep the rain off the seat while it's parked in the work yard.

The nice thing about this is that it packs small and since it doesn't cover the pipe it can go on right away.

I put the dura shield cover on hot all the time per their instructions. Plus the 250 exhaust has a shield on it anyway. No problem with three covers. They also make a lighter travel cover to carry, it is also lighter protection, but works well too.
