Nice and light - easy to use and fit.
This cover has worked well in snow, rain and wind. It's easy to cover and remove from my motorcycle. I like the color too.

Great light weight cover
This cover is the perfect size to protect my 2016 BMW R1200GSA with the aluminum cases installed. It is like a custom fit. The cover is easy to install if you mark the front and the back with a marker to help you find the correct position. I bought the XL size. Highly recommended.

Dowco Delivers
I got this cover for my 2009 Ninja 250R (size medium) a month ago since I don't have a garage. It's held up very well and covers all of the bike. The pull strap comes in handy on windy days. A breeze to put on and take off. I'll use this year round, even when I put the bike in storage during the winter.

I'll admit, every time I remove the cover it feels like I'm unwrapping a Christmas present!

Good cheap cover
As someone who lives in an apartment building I don't have the luxury of having a garage of my own and thus, getting a cover was the only way I could give my bike some way of being separated from the elements. This cover has done a great job so far. I've been using it regularly for about three months and there are no signs of wear with frequent use taking it on and off the bike. Also, I think the cover gives the bike less of a chance of being vandalized because a covered bike is much less alluring than a freshly polished one.

All in all, I would recommend this cover; however, if you have the money to spend on a heat shielded cover that will allow you to cover up quickly before the rain, it may be a good decision--especailly if the cover is filling the void of not having a garage.

Excellent value!!
Very light weight (which I prefer) and easily packs away.
I am mostly trying to protect my bike from harmful UV and dust while at work all day. The large size was a great fit for my 2015
Honda F6B (which has a taller Klock Werks shield) and passenger backrest.

Overall a great value!!!!

I used this on my cross country trip and it kept my bike clean and dry. It folded up small enough to fit easily in my saddle bag. I'll bring this on all my overnight trips.

Compact, Lightweight Travel Cover
I wanted a compact travel cover for my R1200GS with Jesse 10" Odyssey side panniers. Something to keep eyes off it when parked overnight at motels, as well as morning dew, sunshine, birdsh*t, surveillance drones, etc. I got a size large, which fits my bike very well. It does not cover all the way over my wheels - just about halfway, which is perfect as far as I'm concerned. I keep the cover in a small compression sack that takes up very little space in my pannier. It is quick and easy to get it on and off, with the exception of the elastic bottom straps. First time, I had to get on my back to pull them through and hook them like you are supposed to do. I will make a hook tool with a piece of dowel and a screw hook to snag the straps with before the next use. The fabric and build quality seems good for an ultralight product, and I suspect that barring a violent wind storm this cover will travel far and last me a good while. For added water repellence, I imagine that a Nikwax or similar waterproofing product would work well.

Perfect fit, nice light weight
I ordered the size M for my Honda cbr500r and it fits perfectly. It's easy to install and yet it doesn't leave any slack areas to puddle rain. It completely covers the front wheel, the two "ears" are exactly the width of the stock mirrors in the riding position, and it covers about halfway down on the rear tire. It doesn't touch the ground anywhere. NIce and light weight but well-constructed and well-finished. I've used it several times but have not tried it in the rain (yet). Excellent product.

We use the Large size, as a travel cover for our 2016 Victory Magnum bikes, with 13" windshield, and hard lowers. The fit is a comfortable snug, the elastic bottom is very nice. This is a nice quality cover, especially for the price, a good value.

after I removed a lot of parts and fabricated the bike I had to scrap this although while I had it on the bike it really helped with parking it in the harsh winter weather.

Have had 3 in the past, light, fairly sturdy for the lightness, and easy to pack because they are light. Quick on, quick off, easy to pack. Price is nice too.

When I bought the Magna new in 2000, I bought this make and model cover for it. That cover lasted for fifteen years, probably forty percent of that time with the bike stored outside.. Bike still looks new with 60 grand on the clock, so why tamper with success?
Bought the same cover again!!

Sturdy construction, perfect fit for my 2012 Panigale. Provides great protection to storing it outside and can easily be packed and stored in a backpack for traveling. A label marks the front so you don't need to spend time searching for the correct direction. Vents prevent moisture build up on the bike.

What size for honda NC700x?
A shopper on Dec 23, 2012
BEST ANSWER: We would recommend going with a size Medium unless you have bags on the back, in which case a Large would probably be best.
I ride an F800GS with panniers and a top box. Would you recommend the AT or the large? Which one is actually bigger? Thanks for you help!
A shopper on Aug 19, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I purchased a medium Dowco Ultralite Cover that I use on a bike smaller than your F800GS. Even the medium size cover is quite roomy. Previously I owned a R100GS with Aluminum Panniers so I have some familiarity with your situation. My sense based on the size of the medium cover that with the top box, panniers and windscreen on your bike that the large size would be more than ample....possibly even the medium honestly. Hope this helps.
I have F800GS and would like to know what size is recommended for this bike?
kyong c on Apr 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Kyong C: I have a K100RS, which is probably a little smaller in size to your F800GS, and the Dowco Ultralite Cover in Medium fits it perfectly. I believe the main difference in your bike may be the height of the windshield, which may require the Large size.
I have a 2013 Ducati Hypermotard. I store it in the garage so don't need the all weather one. I'm interested in the dowco ultralite plus cover. Can you give me your opinion on what size I should get for my hyper???
A shopper on Sep 27, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I bought it as a gift. It's used on a Harley Sportster that is stored indoors. It's a very nice cover. I'm don't know what size your Hyper is so I'm not sure what size to recommend. It is a nice cover.
I looking for a cover to use on my bike (2014 Ducati Monster 1200) as I trailer it to protect it from road elements? Would this cover work?
Eric T on Jan 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I bought this cover to use on a 3000+ mile road trip thru the Southwest on my K1300S. I simply wanted to cover the bike at hotels overnight to deter any would-be thieves that might be lurking in the shadows.....Muahahahaha!!! Apparently it worked. As a heavy duty cover for long-tern storage or trailering, I think it's a bit too light. I'd go with a heavy duty cover. Be careful using a cover when trailering though - I covered my Tiger 955 from Denver to Albuquerque and that flapping cover ripped off my turn signal. I would have been far better served by NO cover and a good wash upon arrival.
I ride a 2008 gsxr 600. Is the medium size going to fit it? Or should I get large?
Lillian H on May 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am pleased with the cover but don't know anything about 2008 gsxr 600, so can't say if medium would be correct size. I have a Honda CBR 250 and it fits fine but no extra room. Hope that helps
Since my 2013 BMW R1200 GSA is garaged I'm looking for a waterproof, not water resistant travel cover that packs down small and fits well. My question after reading a review from someone who ordered the AT - Adventure Touring size who stated it would be better if it came down farther, especially in the rear. Is there a different size offered that would accomplish that? I noticed you only offers sizing to XL, yet the manufacturer makes this cover up to a XXXL in their sizing chart.
Bruce B on Apr 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have this cover for my 2014 GSW (not GSA). I find that it fits pretty much as the picture shows. With my bags installed the cover doesn't come down as low on the tires but still offers good coverage. The material is pretty thin but that's the trade off for a cover that will pack small which this does. I can't speak to how water proof the cover is since I haven't had it rain yet with the cover installed. It seems like it would be fine in a shower, but hours long hard rain will probably challenge its water resistance. I also have the heavy duty version of the Dowco cover that I use at home which IS waterproof but doesn't pack down very well for touring. Hope this helps.
I have a 1995 BMW R100RT with a top-case and panniers, would a large fit well or should I go for the XL?
Austin F on Jan 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have a 2012 r1200rt with a shad 50 liter top case and the standard bmw panniers and the large fits perfectly
I have a Suzuki sv650. What size Dowco Ultralite Plus cover would I need? Medium?
A shopper on Oct 6, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Have a V Star 650. Got a large and it fits great. I recommend ordering a size bigger than the charts recommend. The sizes are on the small side, order BIG!
