Cover for DL + Bags?

Does anyone know of a motorcycle cover that will fit over my DL1000 plus my Givi sides and top case?

Yeah what he said, but also one that is UV proof...or however you say one that blocks the sun from fading your paint.

Go to any large Wal-mart and look in the auto accessories section. They sell a bike cover that is big enough to cover a Gold Wing. I got one for my wife's PC800 and it's more than big enough for that bike and more. Comes with a stuff sack and packs down to about 6 x 6 inches.

All for under $20.

That is a fantastic tip!

Just out of curiosity, do you remember if it's UV proof or whatever? Can you see through it in direct sunlight when it's on the bike?

Thanks man!

It's opaque. Get the XL size.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

What they said. Wolf XL from Wal-Mart about $20. It ain't fancy but covers nicely, with or without topcase and/or side cases. And the price is right.
