Motorcycle Cover Size

I'm looking at purchasing a Nelson-Riggs Defender motorcycle cover to keep on the bike during the winter in my garage, but I'm wondering what size is appropriate for 2008 K1200GT. I plan on getting a 49l top case, so I'd like it to fit with it on. I'm debating between the XL and XXL, but I'm looking for some guidance.

Thanks for the help!

I have their 1/2 cover in XL (the one that stuffs in a fanny pack). It fits over my givi 52l box, my custom rear plate, and will cover about 1/2 of the side cases. on the front it will fit over the mirrors and goes under the headlight. I would think the XL is the correct one. The XXL are made for Goldwings and full dressers.
Also, Call them and check!

The 49L case is huge. With the 49L and side cases, and an Aeroflow windshield (regular height) I had to go to XXL to cover all with the BMW cover. YMMV.
