    2010 RT Cover

    Any suggestions on a cover for a 1200RT. I would like one that can completely cover the bike with saddlebags and rear top case. Winter in Yuma and need to keep the dust out.

    Have you checked the Walmart cover? I think it's big enough to cover the top case - but if not, take it back.

    Your dealer can get you one from BMW that meets your requirements.

    Check out Formosa Covers @ Amazon

    XXL for large tourers is $29.99.

    I was skeptical at those low prices but I went ahead and got one for my 2012 RT. Was pleasantly surprised at the nice quality fabric and finishing.

    Cheap enough to let the desert sun kill it, then get a different one if you don't like it. Probably should get some kind of light reflective colors though. I think I got a discounted price by ordering a less popular color combination.

    This is a great cover. I bought one two months ago and it is perfect for the RT.

    Now that's a very nice cover. I have a cheapie that I got online that works pretty well so I'll keep what I have. But isn't it amazing how we'll spend $20,000 plus for a motorcycle then balk at spending a few extra dollars for accessories?

    Just because we're poor after spending $30.000 on a motorcycle doesn't mean we need to hire children in China to make the Wal-Mart covers for our $30,000 motorcycles.

    ... who, BTW, do not have a BMW there to pattern after.

    All "universal" means is doesn't fit anything well.

    Get a cover made for YOUR bike.
