The Hidey Hood 90° is a simple to assemble, wall mounted storage solution. Suitable for Motorcycles, Mopeds, Scooters, Mobility Scooters, bicycles and much more. Simply fix it to your wall or shed with the fixing kit supplied and start using it. The Hidey Hood has easy lift up-drop down access. When it's not in use you can tuck it under the rain cover and it will stay neatly against the wall without rain collecting in the folds.

I am struggling to understand what stops a breeze lifting this and ripping it off the fence or wall?

I see nothing to anchor this closed? ... Other than bricks?

Probably wouldn't struggle if you watch the video on amazon it … Probably wouldn't struggle if you watch the video on amazon it attaches to the wall/fence

There's always one lol.

I watched the video and it mentions nothing about how is stays shut only that you have to attach it to a wall or fence.

my ZZR is about 8 feet long (must go and measure and check) I reckon that would be a "close" fit as they indicate 2.5m, assume this is the maximum at the bottom, any body got a full size bike and one of these?

That is the same length as a shed, you must get some funny looks.

Here is an 8 foot long bike:

Maybe the 'fixing kit' would fix it to the wall so it doesn't blow away ;-)

I saw that bike a couple of years ago at the motorcycle show in Birmingham. It's effin' long. The engine is from a Dodgy Viper. The ZZR1400 is probably the longest ZZR and is deffo not as long as this thing.

I think everyone gets the fact that there are 7 screws in a "fixing kit" to screw the top section to the fence/wall as that is crystal clear from the listing.

My concern as stated relates to the lack of any anchoring of the section that comes into contact with the floor when closed. From what I can see, particularly given the size of the hood, a good breeze would get under it, turn it into a huge "sail" and it would be off, c/w the seven screws, particularly if attached to a fence. oO

Why is this getting so much heat when no one has even established the anchoring of it??! Can the people who have added heat/bought it/know anything about it please answer!!

It appears to have some ground anchor loops the same as many tents do - that's about it.
Looks to be nothing more than half a cheap tent/beach shelter.

If you look at 0:18 Mins on the video, they are "poppers" that I think are intended to hold the hood up if for some reason you want it partially down. I also note the description references "Simple Lift up-drop down access". As you say, it's just another slant on a basic tent/beach shelter.

Yeah, it seems kinda pointless, a bike cover would offer the same level of protection against the elements really for half the price.

I wouldn't say that scooter had bags of room more like a snug fit
Not gonna get my V rod under there !! Sounds like an ingenious bit of kit and would of made a nice dust cover in my garage but don't think most big bikes will get under if without catching mirrors etc

Would be expensive for a dust cover use. Can get a custom made one for about half this price anyway - and not have get the bike close up against the wall in a fixed position.

Any pointers to who would do one for half that price , would be genuinely interested , anything with HD in it generally gets quadrupled in price

dustoffcovers.co.uk/dus…htm - from around £25 - obviously depends on size. £30 for your V-Rod (large cruiser size)

Tech7 do a quilt lined one for similar price - think it was on MandP or GetGeared I seen it - was contemplating one for my Ducati but its in the garage and ridden everyday anyway so would barely get dust on it.
