GT Cover?

From these what is the best one. EZ Touring Traveler size A or Dowco Guardian Traveler Size XL and Nelson Rigg UV2000 XL. This is for my 08 GT. I do not have a trunk just the side bags. Just looking for the best half cover.

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Does it come with a mailbox?

Actually I like my Geza cover. Lightweight, throw it in the washer, bit pricy though....

The Geza cover is great - until it gets wet. Then you have a wet bike, and a wet cover that you have to carry.

Ken,

I will get the Dowco for my 08 GT. Thanks for doing all the R&D for me. I used a EZ Touring cover on my 03 GT. It was Just ok but a little small. In two weeks I am off to Rocky Mayers shop for a new seat.

Rocky is about half an hour from me. I went to his shop the day I picked up my GT and have been happy with the seat for 42K miles.

What day is your appointment? Maybe I'll pop up and say hi.

I will be there Monday the 19th. Same for me. I tried two other seats before the Mayer seat. I put 30K on the 03 GT and was very happy with the Mayer seat.
