Dowco Guardian Ultralite Plus Motorcycle Cover
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.

Good travel cover
This cover met my expectations. It seems to be of good quality and it is light-weight which I wanted in order to use while traveling. The storage pouch is made into the cover which is a nice feature. Revzilla was helpful in helping me determine the right size. I am very happy with their service. I recommend this cover.

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.

I previously had a Harley with the typical Harley cover which I paid twice as much as this cover for half of the quality. So it does not matter what you ride this is the cover for it.

Does what it's supposed to
I bought this as a travel cover. I've only used it a couple nights, but it does what it needs to... keeps the bike a mystery. My '01 v-max isn't exactly a hot bike to steal and strip, so I'm not too worried about stuff disappearing, but it's nice to have a little extra peace of mind when staying at a hotel. This cover is thin, light, and packs smaller than my rain gear. Great purchase for me as a supplement to my usual heavier duty Guardian cover.

Great features and easy use
Bought this for my 1975 Honda Cb550. I bought a Large because I am storing it outside and in the elements. I wanted to cover the entire bike including the wheels. The bike is completely covered. Took me 5 seconds to cover, very easy. It also has a sewn stuff bag, so you can't lose the bag. Great product and cheapest price I found

Exactly what I was looking for, lightweight, easily foldable and storable in the sidecompartmen on my Wing.
Good value and compact enough for my needs. Was using an older Dowco heavy duty cover that needed replacement. This fit my needs well.

Perfect for my application
I bought this to use primarily as a dust cover in the garage. It covers every thing, easy to install and remove and keeps the bike nice and clean when I'm not riding it. Nice and soft on the inside so no abrasions. I've used it on a HD Super Glide with a shield and bags and on a Breakout. Fits perfectly on both bikes.
