I'm just about ready to buy the Nelson-Rigg UV-2000 in the extra large size. There's a review on the "Motorcycle Superstore" website about one used on a Wee with a shield and top box and said that size fits perfectly. Don't take this as gospel, I've not got mine yet.

I have the Nelson-Rigg UV-2000 for quick trips and commuting to work. It is small when packed up and appears to be good quality. It fits really well and keeps the sun and rain off of the electronics and the seat. I use a larger Dowco for full coverage when prying eyes might be tempted.

I also have the Nelson-Rigg halfie for my Honda CBR and it works as intended. The elastic loops help keep it in place.

No scratches or color transfer from it? Some Amazon reviews are scary

I use a kwikover (http://www.kwikover.com although the site appears to be down right now). Luggage doesn't matter, since it anchors to the back of the seat and packs into it's own little bag there. The downside is that it pretty much just keeps rain and sun off the seat and dash, not much else. I love it for commuting-if it's going to rain during the day, I just unzip it and roll it out.

If you're looking to spend more, this is another brand I looked at prior to going with the kwikover: GEZA GEAR | Stretch Fit Custom Motorcycle Covers

Good luck!

+1 on the kwiKover. I used one for number of years when I commuted to work. Worked great, easy on, easy off, and easy storage. Always there.

I believe it was made by Laminar Products but they don't seem to list it on their website anymore. Too bad, great product.
