Yer, I know. Late to the party.  :001:

For a decent cover [that actually fits a Tiger] .. give the guys at Dust Off Bike Covers a try.  :027:

Waterproof ones as well as an indoor Dust only one ...?

Enjoy.

I use a Held cover, XL I think, fits perfectly with a top box.

I got one of these, not cheap but great quality.

They will customize size to accommodate tall screen, top box, panniers etc  :028:

Aldi. Best value for money and best overall bike cover I have ever had. Have three on various bikes at the moment.
My Oxford one I had only lasted a couple of years in the australian sun. One of the Aldi covers is like new after about 9 years.

I got an Aldi cover, cost 8, fits over all my boxes. Got it for IOM Manx GP trip 3 years ago, expected to leave it there in a bin but it's still good, since been used on a 2 week Italy tour, 3 x 1 week Scotland trips & about 20 rallies. Not a rip or tear in it, still as new. Seen some weather......and Seagull shoite, which is why I got it.

  I like the polyester canvas covers such as the Dowco guardian.  Much less tendency to melt to the exhaust or header.  There may be other brands made with this type of canvas.
