    Best bike cover?

    I'm looking for a better fitting cover for my Trophy while it sits in the garage for the winter. I currently have a decent Nelson-Rigg vinyl cover, but it's a bit small (was used on my FJ) and I'd rather have something more flexible like the non-woven fabric one I just got for my CTS (and I checked, that company doesn't make bike covers). Can anyone suggest a good fitting cover for the Trophy?

    I use a Tourmaster Elite, XXLarge cover.  It works well with panniers and trunk installed.  :730:

    I use an Umbratex half cover (XL) while out on rallies.  It fits over the fairing, top case and side cases perfectly. One of the full covers should do you nicely.

    Here's a variety of them: https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle-covers#page=1&sort=featured&limit=96&facets%5B%5D=2155&price=&price_min=5&price_max=180&is_new=false&is_sale=false&is_made_in_usa=false&has_video=false&is_holiday=false&is_blemished=false

    Oxford Umbratex XL +1 for this.  Had one for a couple of years now and works fine on trips and keeps prying eyes off my bike.

    Love, light and kindness,

    I have a Dowco XL and it fits very well with the trunk and panniers. Excellent quality and comes with a stuff sack for keeping it contained when I travel. A little higher in price than others but still a good value.

    I use a Geza Gear (http://www.gezagear.com/) cover for my bike any time it's not in the garage. It's actually one I bought for my Victory Cross Country Tour but since it also fits the Trophy...there ya go.

    It is a half cover only and while it covers the top box, it doesn't cover the side cases.

    I got the second from the top tier cover since UV protection was very important to me (no shade at work in the summer time).
