Oxford Stormex Motorcycle Cover
Perfect cover for parking motorcycle outside constantly
I live in the city with no garage, so I'm always worried about weather on my bike when parked. This cover is great. Protects from rain and sun no problem. Inside is soft so no worries about scratching paint and there are small holes on the lower front and back of the cover so I can still chain up my bike which is a huge plus. My only drawback is that I bought one that's too big for my bike! Still works great though and can't fault the product for that mistake. If anyone has a cruiser without huge saddle bags go for the medium instead of large!

Maybe not for tall adventure bikes
I recently received my Stormex cover (size large) and wanted to leave a few quick comments about it. First, it seems like a really heavy duty cover, especially compared to my previous two covers. Between the outside layer, full coverage heat shielding, and protective soft lining, this thing is like placing a bed comforter on my bike. In that regard, it's a very impressive cover and I’m happy with it.
The not so good: it doesn't seem like this cover was designed for adventure bikes. Between the tall suspension, higher mirrors and windscreen, this cover will not completely drape over the bike, which is a bit of a bummer. I ride a KTM 1190 Adventure and the cover doesn't completely drape over the bike, like my previous cover. The cover will only drape down about half way down the front wheel. It looks like the mirrors are the reason for this. I've replaced the windscreen with the shorter screen from the Adventure-R, but if I had the taller one on, it would definitely prevent the cover from draping over the front wheel at all. I was already planning to install shorter mirrors; this will make me do it faster. Otherwise, seems like a decent piece of kit for the bike.

I've had this cover for close to two years now, and it is a beast! The cover has had two feet of snow on it, been hiding my bike from 100+ degree summer days, and blocked out absurdly heavy rain. The cover is soft inside. The bottom cinches very well (and it has a buckle, too). Save yourself the headache of dealing with trying to slip on a snug small cover and order a large. It'll stay in place and it makes it very quick to put on and take off.
Waterproof still to this day. Yes, you may occasionally see 'water' on your seat early in the mornings...don't be stupid, that's morning dew--not rain.

This is the best cover for the value.
I think this is a great product and great value for the money. Only thing was it is hard to gage what size is needed. I have a Triumph Thruxton 900 and based on product description I concluded medium size would fit. However, once received, medium is quite snug and not easy to fit.

good features and seems tough
I'm just going into my first winter using it to store my bike outside, but I like it so far. The material is thick and multi-layered. The extra features all seem well done. The fit is roomy on my Zero S.

I bought this cover for my 2014 BMW K1600GT Sport. I like "overkill" and chose this cover even though the bike will stay in the garage over the winter. I got the large size and found it to fit snuggly. I won't be using the solar panel window for charging as my bike came with a built in charger. I like the soft padding on the inside of the cover so as not to scratch my paint. I hope to get many years out of this cover as it shouldn't see any damaging sunlight. The quality of the materials and the stitchings look to be good.

Almost perfect except for stupid vent location
The large cover fits my DR650 great, with the skirt reaching all the way to the ground. It's heavy duty and looks like good quality. The only drawback is the rear vent location lays right on the seat, so water pours in during heavy rain all over the seat and drips down on the motor, chain, etc. Negates the cover. Who's the genius who designed that feature?
I taped it up with heavy vinyl tape, and that keeps the water out, but it's disappointing. If it weren't for the stupid vent I'd say it was perfect.

Works as advertised. Kept the bike dry.
Ordered large for BMW G650 GS. It's a little big but I'd rather have all of the bike covered than have the wheels exposed.
