No, not that kind of chafing. The kind you get from trailering 600 miles with an open trailer, with a supercover over a shiny new black polaris hood. I remember seeing advertisements for some sort of soft fabric cover to keep this from happening some years back. Anybody ever try one or have one to give up? I don't have the coin for an enclosed trailer, and I don't have any rich riding buddies. That supercover works well, but the heavy boat-cover type material is considerably rougher than canvas. - Thanks in advance - J.P.
