as in topic, do you cover your motorbike when you transport it on a trailer and it's raining or you don't care?

Sounds like a proper test to me: if it can't stand the rain... sell it!!

Only when putting 3 bikes on a trailer and the middle one is backwards I taped the exhaust pipe shut so it doesn't fill up with rain.

I do the same. You may also want to tape off any holes around the air filter.

Not sure what bike it is, but I've towed plenty of (MX) bikes on trailers in monsoon rains without issue. As said, if you can ride in the rain, you can tow in the rain

blakrj,
thanks for the post. I already did it for a couple of times and had no issues indeed.
