Bike Cover

Anybody find a good bike cover for the NG GT? That time of year is coming. I need a cover for garage use...doesn't have to stand up to the elements. Also, for whatever it is worth, I have a CB +4, +2 windshield (if that makes a difference?).

Thanks!
Mike

How about a cheap cotton fitted sheet? It keeps the dust off.

Dowco Guardian Large

I have a Dowco Guardian in size large that I use at work. It works well with the side bags, but is a bit tight with the topcase attached.

I've used these covers for years and had good luck - the lining protects the windshield and they stand up well to even outdoor use.

We use Nelson-Rig UV2000 covers (X-Large) for the RT, KRS and FJR. Your larger windshield shouldn't be a problem with the X-Large. Nice compact covers that store in their own waist pack bag, price is right and if you have to use it outside it is totally waterproof (as we recently found out). We carry them on every trip and put them on the bikes each night.

One of the places you can get them is www.tonker.com.

I use two covers for two very different purposes. I have the BMW "inside" cover for over winter storage in our garage (soft and dust proof, full coverage with topcase) and on the road I use Geza Gear's excellent waterproof, lightweight cover (covers the top half of the front fairing, seat and bags, including topcase.

http://eztouring.com/products.htm I have three (3). Lightweight, waterproof, fit in its own case 4" x 5" (inside helmet). Only minor downside, gotta wait until pipe(s) cool to hand touch!

Thanks, I just ordered one. When touring space at a premium and this just what the Doc prescribed.

I use the EZ touring traveler cover as well, fits better on the GT than it did on my RT.
