    Durable Cover for a 2010 1200RT

    I live in Yuma Arizona in the winter and need a durable cover for my 1200 RT while there. I had a Tourmaster but the plastic vents fell apart in the heat and sun. I need one lareg enough to cover the whole bike with the top case on. Anyone have any experience ?

    Ditto - good luck with two Nelson-Rigg

    Agreed - Nelson-Rigg makes a nice cover - some are not pure waterproof so make sure you select the type you want

    With Dowco you just call her & she sends a new one when the old ones worn out! Hard to beat that, huh? My 1st one was good for ~10 years.

    That is hard to beat. To beat it you would need a product that doesn't need to be replaced. But that is a good deal. There is no substitute for good customer service.

    I have two Dowco Guardian covers. VERY nice, both are in very good condition still- with one that gets full-on weather, and one that is under our carport.

    Go to Dowco's site, find Guardian, and enter bike model to see what size you need. I have my covers on a 93 R100RS and a 02 K1200 RS. Both are the same size- X-large, if I'm not mistaken.
