My bikes outside with a cover on, how much wind force will it take to blow my bike over, I'm worried and looking at her every 5 seconds, I've had to turn my alarm off too.

Please tell me she'll be ok so I can sleep tonight What a Face

Well it does depend on how strong the wind is blowing, pretty blustery my way but not worried about mine being blown over, maybe the cover will get blown off Neutral

I'm pretty sure the bike will be OK, if it's parked on a flat area and the side stand / bike height are normal (some mods make the bike stand fairly upright and could be a problem). Is the bike moving at all in the wind?

I've tightened the cover as much as i can at lower fairing and tied shoe laces around the indicators, It's now as tight as a nuns ahem.

stevcat - She doesn't seem to be moving, but it is dark now so not sure lol
stu - I've done the decent thing and asked already lol, the answer

it does generally take alot for the bike to be pushed over, my first bike lived outide and got battered by the wind many a time, so I know feelings your going through!!

the worst that would happen is the cover gets blown around a bit

I live on right on the south coast. I have taken my cover off due to watching a fazer and cbr both get blown over due to wind inside the cover , but I've never had a problem with mine and it has always been outside , even in 60-70 mph winds it just wobbles abit ,guess it's an upside of a 30 stone bike
