Motorcycle cover

I live in North Carolina, and we are expecting high winds from Dorian. I know this isn't specific to the Honda Rebel, but does anyone know if it's safer to cover the bike when there may be high winds, or keep it off?

It is safer to pull the bike inside and out of the wind.

I have no such experience. Would a cover would act like a sail?

Just do it! (I did: 2017 Rebel 500; 2014 MT-07)

I'd cover to protect from small flying debris. Maybe even a blanket under the cover to add some thickness/protection. Bungee any bottom grommets together to avoid/minimize any sail effect. I'd also try and tuck the bike someplace out of any direct wind path whether covered or not. Good luck.
