I am driving from Colorado to Alaska with my two bikes on Thule upright bike racks. Should I remove the seats and put plastic over the open down tube to keep rain out or should I keep the seats on and cover them with plastic?

I wrapped my saddle (leather) with a grocery store bag, secured with zip ties. I drove about 2hrs under a huge storm heading to Vegas. Worked perfrect. (1up rack)

I never worry about my saddles, but they're not leather. On long road trips, I'm actually more concerned about the fine road grit that builds up on oiled components. Unless we need the seats in the Tahoe, we shove the bikes inside while on the highway for long trips, but still take the hitch rack for local hauling at our destinations.
