Nelson-Rigg UV-2000 Half Cover
It's a cover
Just wanted folks to know it fits the VStrom...really easy, the extra straps hold it down and fit perfect. I bought it so the birds and sun don't damage the bike. I could care less about rain.

Does it's job well.
Only had this cover about a month.
Stops bird droppings from getting on the bike ( NINJA 1000 )
and the sun from baking it all day long in the parking lot.
The bag for it is simple and wraps around your waist with
a strap and clip. So far a good product.

Good for 2013 FJR with tall windscreen.
Good for 2013 FJR with tall windscreen. Fits pretty good, not too snug it's a pain to install and not too loose. Good for the price.

Perfect for the Beast
I bought one last year for my Kawasaki Concours 14 to keep the South Carolina sun off while parked at work. It held up well and still in use so I needed one for my new KTM 1290 Super Duke R. I had read that a medium should work and it fits perfect. Revzilla got it to me quick as always. Used my 5 dollars in Rev cash.

Don't bother - Buyer beware
This is my second UV cover from Nelson-Rigg. The first one lasted nearly ten years of daily use before it finally wore out so I didn't hesitate to just order the exact same model for use on the same bike. When the new cover arrived I first noticed that it no longer had the additional layer of black material on the inside of the cover and felt much lighter weight. Sadly the new cover began to rip in less than a month. It's continued to shred and now needs replacement after less than a year of use. What a shame. Somewhere along the line NR went cheap and it shows in the product. Personally I'd gladly pay a bit more for quality.

Fits like a glove
I decided to buy this half cover so I could cover my bike during the day while I was at work from the sun and rain. I was really impressed how perfectly it fit. I have a full windscreen and a 45L case. I will say that the site elastic straps are kind of concerning. They seem really weak and like they'll fail after regular use. Overall, I like its fit and I like the it protects. I have included pictures so you can see for yourself. I have included pictures so you can see for yourself.

excellent first time purchase
I bought this for my 2015 BMW S1000RR. I believe I purchased the large, cant remember now. I have had no problems with it all summer. My bike is stored in a shed out of weather but I work 32 hr weekends and my bike sits out in the weather and sun on those weekends. I bought this to keep the sun from beating on it and keep the rain off it. So far its done that excellent. My bike sits out in a parking lot for 48 hours and no fading or uv ray dulling to the plastics and best of all...... heavy down pour rain and later the bike is dry. good investment, the material is holding up well so far for 90+ days and the fanny pack that holds it doubles as a lower seat support for me when I ride. Just turn it facing back and lean back on cruise control.

Barely lasted a year
I used this when I commuted to work, and overnight when it wasn't raining. It ripped when it snagged in my backpack once - didn't think much of it and repaired it with duct tape. A year later, it ripped 3 times over a span of a week, just from putting it on over my bike (near seams, and where it touched my bike, such as over the wind shield). From my experience, it does not stand up to frequent use. I guess it worked well and packed up nicely for the year it stayed together.
