Dowco Guardian Ultralite Plus Motorcycle Cover
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.

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!!!!

Extremely Lightweight & Compact, But Bike Will Get Wet
I really hesitated over the "do you recommend the product" button on the review, but ended up selecting yes.
What I like: Love that it's so compact, I take off the cover, throw it in a stuff sack, and into my backpack for the rest of the day.
What I don't like: Pretty much everything else. It's barely water resistant (I will update after I go to REI and buy water proofing spray for it), and it has already frayed a bit at some seams.
In short: If lightweight/compact is your highest priority, this will satisfy that need. It WILL protect the bike, but obviously not as well as a thicker cover, and you'll need to waterproof it frequently and likely replace it within a year. I'm glad I purchased it, just hope that there's a product that is more waterproof that retains the compact size in the future.

This Cover is Durable and made of good quality material.
The reason for the Ease of install Average is that I have a Suzuki Bergman 650 Executive with a trike kit and a luggage box in back. This cover could have been a little larger to fit this Motorcycle.
But in talking with one of the Customer Service Reps I gave him the dimensions of the MC and tried to send a picture of the MC he recommended this cover. I would have preferred a little larger cover.

Great everyday cover
This cover is light weight and packs up into its own attached bag. Sheds water and keeps the pollen and other stuff off the bike. I use it everyday at work and every night at home where I keep my bike outside. I've only had it 2 weeks, but is holding up very well.

Lightweight, cheap, easy to use,
I have a F800r, I bought the medium, it fits great but snug, so panniers probably wouldn't fit.
I love the tag in the front that says front, sometimes its hard to untangle the giant jellyfish-like blob that a motorcycle cover inevitably becomes and a starting point helps tame the cover.
It also has locking holes, I don't think it would slow down a seasoned thief but it will keep the bike safe from drunk people looking to sit on a motorcycle.
the main reason I bought this cover was to replace my last one, it flew off my bike during a 2 hour ride. It was my fault for not securing it properly, but that thing was massive and hard to put into a bag or backpack. This product is super tiny and even folds into a pocket inside the cover!

Ultralight Motorcycle Cover
I was looking for a lightweight cover for my bike when garaged in the Winter and something that would fold up reasonably small if I wanted to pack it for a road trip. Money was definitely an object so this cover fit the bill. It's nice. Their sizing directions were accurate.

Dowco Ultralite Plus
Nice cover, the adventure touring size fits my Versys 1000 LT perfectly (I do not have rear box, just the side boxes). However, I bought this cover for it's UV protection. Rain and water have little effect on properly maintain motorcycles but UV can kill them. UV does a job on paint, plastics, vinyl's, rubber (tires and hoses). So I was glad to see in the description here at RevZilla and on Dowco's site that stated this cover had a UV coating, however, once I received the cover there is no mention of a UV coating any where on the packaging. Seems to me they would have that listed some where on the packing.
I will keep this nice, small, light weight cover and I will give it a good NikWax water repellant and UV protective coating.
