Can anyone share how they are getting on with their bike covers?
I'm also looking for something that will cover the bike from dodgy eyeballs while out on the longer trips. Waterproofing and tea making abilities are not as important as packed size and weight - and ideally not luminous
I use an Oxford Stormtex cover in size XL. Same that I used for the Varadero. I have a 47l givi topbox on the back. The cover fully covers from the bottom of the front wheel to the bottom of the number plate rack. Rear tire stays visible. The cover is solid, anti scratch, anti heat and protects very well from the elements. Maybe a bit large for touring but then I would recommend the Oxford Raintex version which is thinner. I think the raintex also comes in a "topbox version" so the cover will go down to the back tire. I couldn't find the stormtex in topbox version so I make do. I use the bike everyday so back tire out isn't a huge problem and in any event I've built a bit of a shed area with a pvc roof for the rain, so the cover is just to keep her away from eyes. If I'm away a weekend I can take the top box off and then the cover works fully.
