    I wonder if you can get a honda shipping crate from a dealer? From what I've seen they're a metal frame that you could cover with a light plywood...

    that is a fascinating idea

    How about those thick moving blankets? It will look ugly but they will protect if you wrap the bike tight?!? And they are cheap!

    I will agree with all above that any soft cover will rub paint. If you fabricate a shield for stones that would help. I would leave it uncovered and do the following. Clean it, use chemicalguys.com clay block and luber on paint and windshield. Then wipe it clean with new clean cloth. Next use Top coat F-11 on everything and wipe it down. Do not use F11 on rims if you use stick on weights. They won't stick shortly after applying F11. Then use new clean cloth to wipe off excess/buff.
    That should do for dirt. If going to haul in salt then buy some ACF-50 and spray/mist down bike and wipe it down. DO NOT GET ANY ON THE BRAKE ROTORS OR TIRES!
    When you get to where you are going then stop off and visit a car wash and pressure wash it off.
    Done. Bike will look beautiful and clean. When going back do the acf-50 again.
