Oxford Stormex Motorcycle Cover
Really keeps the weather out and is well made.
The large size fits my FJ-09 snuggly and it is relatively easy to put on. Very good value for the price. Slightly bulky but does the job well.

Great if it fits your bike.
This seems like a very nice cover, it is made from a nice heavy material with a lot of features.
But..... I purchased this in a large for a 2008 KLR650 with a top case and saddlebags, it unfortunately it was a little to small. It has 3 moisture vents and no matter how I arranged the cover the one on the rear ended up horizontal on the top on my top case, in a hard rain I think it would let in a lot of water. I think the distance between the windshield and the rear rack on my KLR is to long for this cover.

Heavy Duty Cover
This is a Heavy Duty cover. I like Oxford covers, they have worked well for me. My motorcycle is parked outside year round. During riding season I use an easy-on, easy-off Oxford Aquatex Camo cover to protect the bike overnight. During the winter when the bike gets parked out back I put the Stormex cover right over top of the Aquatex cover. So the bike is double wrapped against nasty winter weather. The Stormex cover is a very heavy duty, thick, multi-layered cover that envelopes the bike, windshield, bags, pipes, and wheels all the way to the ground. No part of my motorcycle is exposed to the winter elements and it is well-protected.

Great cover, completely weather proof, covers the bike completely. Soft material on the inside, doesn't leave any scratches

Very good quality
Great cover if your bike sleep outside. Quality material that won't scratch your bike. It is a little pricey, but compared to the bike itself, it worth the money!

I know Oxford products well being from the UK. Even though my bike lives under a shelter, I'm a wee bit OCD about dust and dirt.
When it's outside it gets covered and in Florida you blink and it's pouring rain. Enough said.

Quality material and manufacturing
The cover is much better than expected. I used it immediately on arrival. Since then, we have had several days of torrential rains and winds. These covers have stayed in place and have kept the bike dry. I really appreciate the liner that protects against scratches from the durable outer shell. I bought two and am ordering two more.
I highly recommend. Two thumbs up!

Functions well, but low durability
I've used this cover on my bike for the last 5 months. My bike is completely stored outside 24/7. This cover functions well in that it keeps the bike dry and does its job. There are convenient slots located near the front and rear wheels that allow you to lock the cover to the bike and of course lock up the bike itself.
The inner liner is soft so scratches won't be a problem and I've never had a problem with the cover melting on a hot exhaust as I usually allow the bike to cool down for 15 minutes before putting the cover on.
The only issues I've experienced with this cover are durability related. As other reviews mentioned, there are taped seams around the plastic windows and vents that are coming loose. The 5 months of sun, rain and wind has done a number on the taped seams. These seams will become leak paths, so I'm thinking I'll try some weather proof electrical tape or something like that to fix them. Also, the cover was initially black when new, but after 5 months of continuous Midwest sunshine, the cover is now a gray color. I imagine I'll get one more season out of this cover, given the wear that has occurred after just 5 months of continuous exposure to sun, rain and wind. I was hoping for a more durable product at this price point.
As far as fit, I have a medium sized cover installed on my Kawasaki EX500, which has a small, windowed fairing. The medium cover fits this model bike well with good coverage all the way to the ground. I think a medium will fit most naked standard bikes. Longer cruisers and any bike with a fairing will need the large size to make installing and removing the cover easier.
Overall the cover works well and does its job (keep the bike dry), but I'm not satisfied with the long-term durability of this product.
