    I have no idea, unless it is a tarp to put over the bike and mechanic/rider for emergency repairs during harsh sunny or very rainy days.

    Seeing who the seller was, it's most likely the rubber overboot kit for a R1200 series Hexhead.
    It's a rubber temporary cover to patch a cracked or slightly damaged rocker cover so you can get home. A good GS item to carry for some

    Ah, there ya go. Another advantage of riding an old airhead ... they all come OEM equipped with two emergency valve covers.

    It's made to fit the R1200s

    You don't need this for an Airhead
