A disposable hotel shower cap works great on the seat for keeping the rain off when the bike is parked.  We keep one readily available in a pannier pocket.  They are very light and very small.  Keeping the rain off helps keep your shorts dry, which helps keep your rear healthy.  I like getting out of the goretex as soon as possible, certainly before the seat would have a chance to dry.

I can't imagine carrying a bike cover.  The bike is going to get wet while you ride it anyway.  My bias is bike cover = brick, but to each his own.

I've never noticed that my saddle absorbs any water. It seems to shed it like a duck.

I carry as little as possible--3 pound tent with fly, 2 pound sleeping bag, etc.  There's no way I'll carry a bike cover.  I have enough to carry in carrying myself, which is not getting any lighter!
May the wind be at your back!
