I needed a new cover for travel (something that packs small). The overall reviews were good and it's reasonably priced.

My brother has a old Nelson Riggs cover on his scooter for years n it's as strong as ever, the New version of the Nelson Riggs cover doesn't even come close to the old Nelson Riggs covers quality wise though....
M Z on May 2, 2016
Cover keeps the bike dry and the vents really do work to prevent condensation.
Tom P on Apr 15, 2016
Ordered this in medium for Honda CBR500R; fits perfectly.
Paul C on Feb 21, 2016
Needed for protection against sun and rain. Good to hid the bike for our moto trip.
Jessica F on May 15, 2015
Had used the prior Defender 2000 model for the past six years, and it was time to get a new one. The old XL fit a little tight over my Triumph Spring GT. I opted for the XXL. Now it completely covers the bike. Excellent fit!

I'd recommend the XXL for anyone with any touring bike with saddlebags and a tall front.
Jean-Paul O on Feb 12, 2015
Waterproof, great reviews, half the price of a harley cover, compression sack included.
Jeff M on Nov 5, 2014
This was my third Nelson-Rigg cover. First was for a 600 CC sportbike and the second a half-cover for when it sits out at work. When I got a BMW K1200RT it was a no-brainer. The cover wears well under SoCal sun, protects the finish, doesn't haze the windscreen and is well styled. Found sizing to be fairly accurate.

To protect my bike during our rainy winters.
Mark G on Sep 29, 2014
I used a NR cover for 3 years before and it was still in very good shape after that time. I believe I got the standard cover before so I just wanted to upgrade a little bit this time.
Tommski on Jun 30, 2014
I do not have a garage. To store my 2012 Honda Shadow Aero in the shed I have to ride the length of my yard. I leave for work very early and riding on the wet grass in the morning is a pain. I was looking for a waterproof cover so I can store the bike at the end of the drive. After reading reviews I felt this cover would be a good choice.
Debra L on Jun 3, 2014
Needed a bigger cover to fit over my top case!
JoshB on May 7, 2014
Wanted a sturdier cover as the bike is outside during summer months. Had used auto parts store covers which deteriorate from UV in a season. This is much more substantial, easy on and off, more waterproof and I am very pleased with the product.
Blake on May 2, 2014
I chose this based on Revzilla reviews.

I've had this cover on my bike for 2 years and it's been great. Sadly it was stolen(?) can't imagine why but had to get a replacement.

It's (somewhat) bullet proof for street parking.

What size Defender 2000 cover would you recommend for an 07 Harley Nightster 1200 cc?
A shopper on Apr 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: XL or XXL depending on if you have bags and stuff
What size cover would work with a Yamaha WR250R?
David K on Aug 8, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I have no idea. Most likely the smallest without looking at a sizing chart. My bike is a BMW K1200GT so a fer piece bigger. The chart will give you the right answer but since 250 is about as small as you go the small will be right. The cover is excellent. Have used the $30 auto parts store ones and still do for travel but this unit is really worth the $70 or so it costs. I saw a half one at a really the other day and it too is a good cover for its purpose. Highly recommend the purchase.
Hi. I'm trying to find out a good cover for winter storage indoor but can also be used outdoors. Can anyone who has it speak as to how good is it overall?. Is it soft inside as to not scratch the paint?. Any recommendations on other covers besides this one?. Thanks in advance!
A shopper on Oct 7, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I have the cover and I can tell you that it is very well made a suited for storing your bike indoors or outdoors. It has vents to let it breathe without letting in any water. It has a soft material inside where it might contact the windscreen, but the rest of it is waterproof coated fabric inside. I've used for years without scratches. If you are concerned with scratches, you could try laying a soft bed sheet over the bike first, before the cover, and that would prevent scratches if you were planning on storing it in a windy environment.
Hi. Looking for someone who bought this to speak to it overall. I'm looking to use it for indoor winter storage and possible for outdoor in non-winter. I'm hoping someone can speak to: Quality of materials. Breathability. Is it snug enough?. Is it soft inside so to not scratch the paint?. Any recommendation on any other cover?. Thanks in advance.
Emiliano R on Oct 7, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I bought the XL for my Kawasaki Concours ZG-1000 last July. I live in Maryland, so we get all four seasons, although not so much winter as New England. I use it year-round outdoors and have found it to be sturdy, yet breathable. High quality materials for my money. On mine, the area over the seat and saddlebags has faded a bit due to the continuous sun exposure, but I have not noticed any accompanying deterioration in the integrity of the material.
I do find that after rain, because of the contour of my bike, water collects above the bottom seam near the centerstand on either side. I attribute this to the wear and tear on the elastic at the bottom over the past year, but the water does not touch the bike as far as I can tell. It just means you need to remember it's there when you go to uncover, or you'll get wet unexpectedly (guess how I learned that). I figure I'll get at least another year or two out of it before the fabric starts to break down.
I'm overall very pleased and would buy it again - heavy duty fabric, well made, appears it can last several seasons outdoors all the time.
Is there an opening for rear antennas such as on my HD Ultra?
A shopper on Nov 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No, any opening would compromise the waterproof capability, in my bike, both antennas folds down wich ease installing the cover.
What size for Harley Iron 883 ?
Dexter A on Mar 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I ordered a large cover for my BMW R1150R. And it fix perfect.With plenty of room for my windshield and luggage bags if I decide to install them. I'm very happy with it.
Will the Nelson-Rigg Defender 2000 cover a BMW R1200RT? High windshield but no panniers or top case. Getting conflicting information on what size to buy. Everything from the L to the XXXL. Any real use feedback would be greatly appreciated. Also any info about this cover scratching or hazing?
A shopper on Aug 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I don't have a touring bike but I have a Yamaha FZ6R which is a 600cc size bike. Based on Nelson-Rigg sizing chart, the medium (750cc or smaller) should fit my bike but I decided to get one size larger which is the large (750cc - 1000cc) and it fits great. I decided to get the one size larger so that it was be easy for me to put on and take off. I had ones where it was just the right size and it was a pain for me to stretch and put on. I would definitely get this cover again as it is a quality bike cover for a reasonable price.

As far as scratching or hazing, I have not experienced any. I leave my bike outdoors 24/7 since I don't have a garage and it is subject to the East Coast weather year round. I had the cover for about 2 years now and the only thing is that the top part of the cover which used to be black has turn grey since it is in the sun all the time (haven't road much in the last year or so due to work).

Not sure if my experience helps you in finding the right size for your bike.
G'day, I live right on the coast with plenty of salt spray, wind ,rain and its really hot, just wondering if the cover will last in the direct sunlight, the Oxford i bought just fell apart probably from the excessive elements mostly the wind I would say. Do you recomend any other brands ? a Dowco, a Held, or do you think the Nelso-Rigg Defender 2000 is the best value for money or whats the 3000 do thats different. Also what size do you think for a Suzuki GS500F with a rack on the back ?
A shopper on Oct 8, 2013
BEST ANSWER: well, i live in exactly the opposite climate which is high altitude (7000ft.), temperate, not very windy and dry. it has been however, a wet fall. also, at high altitude the sun is much more intense. with that in mind i would say that the waterproofness is very good except for a minor leak on a seam probably due to pulling it over a large rack on the bike. my only complaint is that the color faded badly over the summer due to the sun at altitude. as this is my first cover i can't say if anything is better but i would say that i'm satisfied with my purchase other than the fading. one more thing. i ride a kawasaki klr 650 with all the armor and an extra tall windshield. i bought a size large which covers fairly well but wish i would have bought the xl. hope this helps!
What size for iron 883 ?
A shopper on Oct 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Large is a good fit on my Suzuki Intruder 700. Looking at my bike next to my cousins 883 I'd suggest going a size up to the XL.
What size for a Triumph Thruxton R?
