The only cover I will use in a garage is an old bedsheet. You do not want to trap moisture under the cover as that leads to rusted parts.
For outdoor storage, I've never used a cover. But, I usually rode the bike regularly or had covered storage (unheated garages can get pretty cold and damp; proper ventilation helps).
Ride the bike and re-lube the chain at your first convenient time.
29 psi sounds right for tubed 250s (that is what was recommended for the old Honda Rebels). I have a compressor in the garage. Tire pressures get checked Saturday mornings.
When touring, it can be a challenge to find a gas station with an appropriate air hose connector that works with motorcycles. I toured much of Flagstaff, AZ, looking for one when visiting the youngest boy.
