I got this one on Amazon for $21.99 with free shipping. I am very satisfied with the fit. It has elastic along the bottom that snugs it up nicely. It also has a couple of large grommets and straps if you want to tie it down which I haven’t needed. I did cover the metal grommets with adhesive silicone to keep them from coming into contact with the paint. My bike has a full sized windshield and a passenger backrest as well as saddlebags and it fits perfectly. YMMV.

I was just looking at this cover and it looks pretty nice. Curious if you still like it after 2 years and if you've noticed any fading or deterioration. Also I see it comes in a few different sizes. What size is yours? Mine will also need to cover a large windshield.


Thanks!

I didn't get a reply about what size that Amazon cover option needed to be. I inquired on Amazon and was told the XXL would not hit the floor with the large windshield on. Then another responder told me not to waste my money because the cover was made of tarp like material and very poor quality, despite all the favorable reviews. Honda charges in excess of $100 for their covers so I thought that Amazon one was probably too good to be true. So does anyone have any suggestions for one that will (1) fit, (2) look good, (3) be waterproof and breathable and all the aulities one wants in a cover, and (4) be sturdy and long lasting?


I hate paying $100 for what is essentially a large piece of plastic fabric, but it's important for the bike.

I'm kind of leaning toward this one, lacking input here:

It seems to be well reviewed, and I've always heard Dowco's name whenever anyone talks motorcycle covers. I had a couple Nelson Rigg covers and they lost their elasticity as well as fading in the light very quickly. So I think I will try a new brand this time.
