The wind blows. (Get it? It's a pun.)
So it was really windy today at Purdue, didn't think much of it. Turns out the keeping the cover on was a bad idea......
"We realize that we have not answered all your questions and in most cases, our
answers have only served to produce more questions for which we have no answers,
leaving us as confused as before. However, (we believe) we are now confused on a
much higher level and about much more important things than before."

That's why I love my job, I harness the wind and make it do my bidding.
I have had that happen to me twice. Motorcycle covers are great for protecting the finish and hiding your bike from prying eyes, but they can turn into sails if you point the bike in the wrong direction and a big gust of wind comes up. Both times the bike was on the side stand. Perhaps placing it on the centerstand might make it more stable in the wind.

I always liked the idea of something like this:
Not quite as portable as a simple cover(or as cheap) but far less likely to tip over and if it does you probably have bigger worries than the bike.
