Dowco Guardian Weatherall Plus Motorcycle Cover
Great quality bike cover
The Dowco Guardian Weatherall Plus motorcycle cover in sport size fitted my VFR800F (2014) perfectly and looks great. I have only given performance and durability average ratings because I have only had the cover a couple of weeks and have not yet used it outside or in the rain, from the obvious quality of the product I am sure it will perform as advertised.

I purchased another brand cover that faded and the taped seams came off in just 3 months of use. In South Florida it rains daily in the summer and the UV and sun is very harsh. My experience with this cover has been perfect to say the least. 1 year of use and there is zero fade or degradation of any kind. I do not have a garage and my bike sits out side 24/7 no mater what kind of weather. This cover vents well and will not trap moisture under it. It rains and the gets very steamy here right after but his cover has protected my bike perfectly. The stitching is perfect after a year of use and abuse. The protective heat resistant lining over the pipe area lets me throw it over relatively hot exhaust after 5-10 minutes of parking the bike. I am always looking for the next best thing out there but honestly I have not once felt the need to find a better cover because honestly there is not one !
Thank you for an excellent product that already has more then paid for itself by keeping my bike in perfect condition for over a year and the way it looks, for many more years to come.

Heavy Duty Cover
This is everything I had hoped it would be. Nicely heavy duty. I have no doubt it'll last for years. Also: the strategically placed fireproof fabric works as advertised -- I just park and put the cover on. Good stuff!

Quality vs. Price = Spot On!
Size LG fits perfectly over my R NineT and does not drape onto the ground. The air vent is brilliant, and the material used is not too light, and not too heavy.

Bad fit for a 2015 FZ09 sport bike.
Two things wrong for my bike.
1. Does not cover the font tire completely, perhaps because the FZ09 has a more traditional handle bar rise.
2. The cover is fitted in such a way that the front wheel should be straight forward. NOT in the left turn lock position.
If your sport bike has short bars and you don't mind the ill fit when using the steering lock, then it's not a bad cover.

Like the included cinch bag
I use this weekly for my KTM Duke 390. I opted for a size medium due to the price gap with the sportbike size and it fits with room to spare. The lower section is silver/grey in color, so it shows all the grease and dirt that it picks up.

Great cover from Dowco. I bought my first (and recently retired) Guardian cover from Dowco back in '08-ish and it lasted up until last month when the seams finally gave after about 3 years covering my ride outside through the seasons.
I really love the way Dowco evolved their venting system by making it it cloth and with a stiff plastic/metal hem that keeps the vet open and not closed/covering the vent holes.
Its a lot, and I mean a LOT easier to get up and around my bike and it fits it like an Alpinestars Track Suit. The cover lays over the mirrors as if it was tailored to by specific bike and now for the strap, there is a buckle and not the old d-ring.
I recently treated my cover with some "No Wet" or "Never Wet" product and after the first rain, water just beads off of it like a newly polished car.
There is a pocket on either side now for an alarm (the old one only had it on the left side), and now there are holes to access your disc lock -- although I don't know why you'd want to access your lock before you take the cover off but that's just me -- and the access holes are on either side of the cover also.
The box also mentioned about shielding or extra material at the bottom for the hot exhausts. Unlike my old cover, I did not notice that section.
Fit, quality and ROI--amazing.
