Dowco Guardian Weatherall Plus Motorcycle Cover
Works well enough
Fits over my 2009 250r Ninja quite well.
Kind of a pain with it always trying to catch on the turn signals/grips/mirrors etc, but that's not the fault of the cover.
I have to fold the mirrors in for the cover to fit well.
Rated 4/5 for durability because when I first got it a few months ago water would slick right off the cover and bead up instantly, but after 3 months of use (with rain almost every night) -- the water tends to puddle a tiny bit more.
Still doesn't soak through, and it keeps the bike dry but I digress.
Recommended for the price. Protect your investment.

Nice heavy duty quality product!
I ride a Triumph Tiger 1050 SE and the size XL wraps around my whole bike pretty darn good, including side bags/panniers and top case. Based on what I've experienced so far, I can expect the Dowco Guardian cover will last a long time. It is a bit bulky, even when folded nice and tight in its storage bag. So keep that in mind when traveling, it will take up at least one of your size bag space. If you keep your bike outside, the Weatherall cover will definitely protect it from the harsh weather!

Fits Dyna Superglide
This cover fits great! It is a heavy material that should last for years covering my bike in the garage.

This cover is just the perfect thing! It is on the pricey side but it blocks rain and moisture out quite well! I got the sport bike fit and its amazingly huge. It cover my bike COMPLETLY!! I also like the fact I can throw this on right when I get home, no waiting. Which I like. Even in 30'F weather its not as cold as the temp. Haven't bought the alarm for it but I intend to. If your looking for a cover look no further, this is it!!

Great so far
The large is an excellent fit for my Honda NT700V.

pros and cons
i left "durability" blank because i simply haven't had it long enough to be able to determine this. the quality of the cover i must say is quite pleasant; i can tell it is far better than the cheaper covers i've seen/felt. the only complaint i may have is that it's not always easy to figure out which is the front, especially when you first start using it. i also dislike that certain sizes are only available in black, thereby reducing its visibility at night. another positive: the few times i did have my moto out in the rain with the cover, the moto was dry the next day when i uncovered it for use. i also like that the size/shape fits my moto rather well! price is kind of expensive (i have the sport bike size) but, oh well..

The only cover you need
my first bike, so first everything, and this cover was the best choice. quality material to stand the elements and no tears or loose seams. i'm stretching it pretty good sometimes if it gets snagged on a bolt or something. packs up into almost nothing so i can ride away with it or stuff it in an existing pack. hides the bike well too.

Doesn't impress, but doesn't really disappoint either
I have been using this cover on my '99 Ducati St4 for a few months now, and I am not terribly impressed.
- After a good rain, the bike tends to be a little wet wherever the cover lays on it (gas tank and seat mostly)
- There is a vent on the left-hand side that is supposed to face downwards, but it could end up facing horizontal if I am not careful when I put the cover on
- There is a lot of fraying along the inside of the bottom of the cover (NOTE: does not appear to be affecting performance, I just don't like it)
- This is a pretty hefty cover, so it does offer some protection
- The elastic/strap at the bottom of the cover give it a pretty good seal around the bike
- I have put the cover on a few times right after finishing my ride, and it has not been melted or burnt by the exhaust
- Does everything I would expect given its price, but doesn't really impress me
