- The best way to secure these covers in windy situations is to pull the elastic draw cord in the hem tight, lock it with it's cord lock, then pull the free end over the saddle and hook it to the shift lever or brake pedal. (Shift lever if the cover is 'right side out', brake pedal if it is 'inside out'. Or if you have a very old motorcycle)..

- Not so great after all.Review by Paul
- Loved the cover so bought a second for another bike. Shortly after the purchase of the second, the first began to disintegrate. I patched with rip stop fabric but it just turned to shreds. Granted sun is intense here in DC, but I expected the fabric to hold up longer given the premium price (now $127. for a small). So I began using the newer second cover and it's exhibiting the same fabric failure. Don't think I'm going to buy a third. (Posted on 7/12/13)
- Aerostich Ultralight Bike CoverReview by Philip
I bought this cover on recommendations from some forum friends and I certainly am not disappointed.
I have a k1600GTL and this cover is perfect for it, I use to cover the bike nightly on trips and it does a fab job, packs small and does a big job. BUT!!! tie it down, securely with the grommets, I nearly lost mine on the last trip, walked to dinner and came back and it was gone, luckily it wrapped itself around a light pole 100 yards away in the middle of the street and we found it. Tie it Down!! (Posted on 7/9/13)
- Small Size, Big CoverageReview by Stacy
- I like to cover my K1600GTL during overnight hotel stays, and this ultralight shroud is just the ticket. The material dries quickly and packs into a compact bundle. A built-in shock-cord holds the cover in place. This is perfect for discouraging the curious, repelling dirt and dust, and guarding against light rain and morning dew. (Posted on 6/10/13)
- Great cover but still too smallReview by Richard
- I have a 2012 BMW K1600GTL. The cover is great. It packs easy and has its own self contained storage bag. I wish the cover was larger. I ordered a large cover but with the GTL trunk, the cover looks more like a half or 2/3'rds cover as opposed to a full cover. I just checked to see if there was an XL but not an option. The cover is expensive as far as covers go. Too bad its not a little larger. (Posted on 5/21/13)
- Excellent coverReview by mou10eer
- This is probably the best cover on the market, if your criteria includes function, durability, and weight. I've used the cover on multiple cross-country rides, on-road and off-road; and it is the standard by which others are measured. I have a collection of mid to high-end covers, and there isn't one that comes close in those three areas. No kidding. (Posted on 5/9/13)
- Medium CoverReview by stephen
- The medium size works well on a Moto Guzzi EV Touring (which has a factory windshield/fairing). Packs up much smaller than anything else I have ever had. (Posted on 3/6/13)
- Not behemoth sized enoughReview by Goldie
- I was excited to order this cover to replace the bulky Victory Vision cover I've packed on past trips. I ran out to try it on for size & sighed when it didn't quite cover my Vision. But I will use it with tie-downs since it does mostly protect the necessaries. And it is so much smaller. Hope it stands up as well as others have reported. (Posted on 2/23/13)
- Motorcycle CoverReview by Dave
The cover is very nice - I ordered the large size for my BMW K1200LT and it fits almost like it was tailored to the bike. My only suggestion would be to offer an option to those with bikes having high antennas, to include another grommet, similar to those included at the bottom of the cover, to allow the antenna to protrube out. Having to take the antenna off for each use is inconvenient. The cover could be reinforced at the antenna grommet area with a low heat, iron-on patch. Thanks for a great cover, ideally suited for cross country travel.

- Not perfect but very goodReview by Steve
I've had one of these covers for several years and just bought another. As others have noted it's very light weight, packs pretty small and the sewn-in pocket means there's no extra bag it packs into that could get lost. It orients quickly and easily on the bike since you know the label goes to the front and the storage pocket at the back.
The material is surprisingly tough for how light weight it is. My only issue with it was it split at a seam not long after I bought my first one. I solve the issue of not being able to let it come in contact with hot pipes by cinching it down with the pipes outside the cover. Not all bike configurations will allow that.
I haven't found a cover i like better and in 35+ years of riding I've tried a number of them. (Posted on 10/4/12)
