    Motorcycle Covers?

    I know there's a thread out there, I remember reading it. But I can't find it.

    Time for a new cover for my nekkid LWB /5 with Krausers.

    Any recommendations?

    Thks.

    Check Amazon's Max BMW. I bought a BMW brand outdoor cover with zipout for a top box and panniers for my 2012 RT. it fits great, very high quality. About $130.

    I ordered mine on-line at carscover.com and I am very happy with it. It arrived promptly and fits very nicely over my bike with the windshield and rear box. It's funny though, I just visited their site I didn't see the one I got which is an indoor cover made out of a high-quality soft black cloth material for winter storage for my R 1200RT. If you're looking for an indoor cover you may want to give them a call.

    Another good choice is WeatherAll Plus by Guardian with a Limited Lifetime Warranty. Very nice cover but I guess you need to read the fine print if you're concerned about the Limited Warranty.

    My standard reply on covers(for an outdoor durable cover) is Dowco. I bought it once & they last well & all you do is call & they send a new one when it wears out. They take the UV,rain,vented and the mice don't chew them either. Hard to beat that.

    I bought an EZ Touring cover about 18 years ago for a K11LT. I've used that same cover on the K11LT, a K12LT, and R1150RT, and an R12GS. I will admit it fit some bikes better than others. The cover is still in excellent shape and will be used on the R12GSW that is coming soon.

    I have the "Traveller" A.

    Bought a cheap nylon cover from China off flea bay from takecover100. It packs up the size of a 1L water bottle and serves well to keep the dew and dust off my F800 with all bags etc.

    Think I paid a total of $15 for it including shipping. It worked so well I bought another one for my wifes bike. Perfect travel covers.

    Just looked on flea bay, they must be popular because the price has gone up to $20 but they are now US based and not China direct.

    Okay.... what size are you all using? Medium? Large? No windshield, but with Krausers; 30" overall width, (my bar ends fold up), 88" overall length (including luggage rack).

    Any personal experience with this? I'm trying to avoid the expense of a return.
