Bike cover
« on: July 13, 2021, 05:00:46 pm »
Unfortunately I don't have a garage to put my bike in so want to get a cover to keep the elements off.  What recommendations do people have for a good cover which will fit over the top box and panniers too?

If you have access to Tourmaster covers, follows is what I used to cover my TTSE with top box.

Curious how that cover might fit if you removed the top box?  Recommend going down a size in that case?

I can't say for certain, but looking at the picture of an XL cover, it looks like that would be a good assumption.

I am wearing this cover from the photo and I am happy with it because it covers the entire motorcycle, including TopCase with the luggage rack, in addition, it has grip tapes for the lower part so that the cover is well attached to the motorcycle. Best of all, is to take it on a trip, it takes up very little space and weighs very little.

As you can see, in its case to store it are all the measurements. I wear the XL.

Only motorcyclists know why dogs stick their head out the car window.

I have a Oxford cover and it does cover the bike including the panniers. I have’nt tried it with the top box. It IS very light so I always use the securing strap that goes under the bike. It isn’t waterproof as it is made of tent type material so I put a large plastic bag over the entire seat so it is dry in the morning. I tried using a hotel towel but it was soaked by morning. I use it to stop dust and grime getting into the pineapple block switches. I figure if I don ‘t then if it rains I will end up with sludge entering the blocks and damaging the switches. Maybe I’m being too cautious but we all know how much spare parts cost.

Not only how much they cost, but whether they are available at all. Cheers.  :158:
