Oxford Umbratex Cover
Good value, keeps the sun and dirt off the bike
The cover is good at keeping sun and dirt off the bike.
Folds into a small package, fits under the seat.
Rain will eventually saturate the cover and pass thru to the bike.
Easy to install.
Relatively rugged. No breaks, tears, or rub through after 3 months of daily use.

Just what I needed for my FZ-07 while it sits at work
So. Let me begin by saying I commute most days on a 16' Yamaha FZ-07 and I live in California. I wanted some protection from the elements (mainly the sun) as my bike sits outside all day. I ordered a medium Umbratex cover and it's perfect. It doesn't cover the whole bike but that isn't what my goal was. I just wanted the top (painted body/seat/electronics) covered to protect from long term sun damage. The cover fits perfectly (attached at rear pegs, driver pegs and loops snugly under tail / headlight. For $20 you really can't ask for much more. I pack this in my backpack every day and it comes in a little carrying case. (Don't plan on fitting this in a sport bike storage compartment its not THAT small)
But yeah. Great price, great product. Offers protection from elements and deters from theft.

with Sizing info Nice cover for travel, short parking
Sizing please to help others...
Show is Large cover on 1999 BMW F650.
Size is good, except this model has some quite tall mirrors, which make the cover a touch short in front
ALSO see picture of XL cover on the bike for perspective. I bought the XL for my F800GSA with topcase (no pics as sitting in Surinam now)
Looks like it will be fine (for a light cover) as for durability given good apparent quality
Quality looks fine, as Oxford generally does and typical good value. No lining for windscreen, but not so sure how important that really is. (for full cover hard to beat $20 Walmart one for value).
Nice, easy to deploy in wind, and good protection from sun and misc garbage. And compact size is nice for overland travels.
(with likely some of the tallest mirrors put on a bike:)

Perfect for what I need...
I work on an island in the Puget Sound and take a foot-ferry to and from. I park my bike near the ferry terminal in the open. Hence, sun, rain, and bird droppings. I wanted a half-cover to keep my bike free from the elements - and bird droppings - for quick installation and no waiting for the pipes to cool. The Oxford Umbratex Cover fits the bill perfectly. Takes a minute and a bit to put on, and a couple to take off and fold back into its storage pouch. (Hint: Read the instructions so you don't put it on backwards and wonder why it is not as easy as advertised. Not that I did that - just a suggestion...)

XL fits my BMW K1600GTL great
I use this cover daily to keep my bike out of the sun and rain while I'm at work. It stays secure and does a good job of protecting the bike. Only takes a min to put on or remove. I've only had it for a month, so we'll see how it works in the long run.

simple to use and fits in my side bag. Because it does not go all the way down to my pipes i do not have to wait all night to put it on after riding. works with my R1150RT as well as my VFR800.

Good product at a good price
I bought the cover for my Triumph Daytona to use during a multiday trip. Small enough to fit inside the Daytona's tail section (very little space available there) but kept the rain, dew and leaves off the bike. The price was very reasonable too.

Great Bike Umbrella
Purchased this before heading out camping for 13 days. Just big enough to cover the essentials, so as not to be all wet from dew in the morning. We did have some rain on the trip and it did it's job flawlessly. Even used it at a couple of stops in town, where we left the bike, for an hour or more, with jackets and pants locked up, but with the cover on, I believe its less inviting, for would be thieves, if you gear isn't easily seen.
