Looking for a full cover

I am looking for a full cover for a Stratoliner. Something that will stand up to regular use, and fits the bike with the windshield and bags, without leaving so much extra cover that it becomes a sail while the bike is parked. I have a half cover, but it is not effective for me, since I park in a lot that adjoins a limestone quarry. Dust is definitely a factor

I was recently doing a lot of woodwork in the same garage where I had stalled my bike.

I used one of these:

Worked very well indeed, just some sawdust on the boards, which I hadn't covered.

HTH, kind regards, Wim

The cover just arrived, several days ahead of the projected delivery.


Too hot in the garage to play with tonight, and rain in the forecast for the next two days or so.

The cover fits beautifully, and goes on very easily. Next week, weather permitting will be the proof of how well it protects against the quarry dust. Thanks for the recommendation.

It's only a pleasure - using mine all the time.

Funnily enough it fits much better now I have the Corbin top case and bags rather than just the OEM bags .

Kind regards, Wim

P.S.: Make sure you fold it lengthwise pretty narrow prior to rolling it up when you want to put it back in the bag it came in. It is amazing it actually fits in that small a bag .
