All in one cover?

Postby Jmill2013 » Thu Mar 28, 2013 2:14 pm



New guy to the forum / 1989 GL1500 (from VFR). Looking for a recommendation. Would love a cover that will work at home (very dry western CO, need protection from the sun) and on the road (compact enough to take with). I'd rather not reinvent the wheel, spending cash to find out it won't work. Any thoughts?

Appreciate all the topics
Great ideas

Jason

PS Beautiful ride out to Moab yesterday for lunch at the entrance to AmasaBack. What a beautiful world we live in. Lets ride!!!

I just bought the Ultragard full cover a week ago. Haven't tried it yet but did read several reviews on it. Some negative but MOSTLY good ones. Like anything else, regardless of others opinions, I have to try it for myself. The Ultragard one seems to be the most popular and is sold on mostly all of the accessory sites. Good luck with whatever you choose.

Sounds like a good one to check out. Wondering if you think it would be packable or more useful at home. When you have a chance to check it out I would love to hear what you think.

When I'm travelling I pack the Ultra Guard half cover. For storage I use an extra large cover that I picked up at Walmart.

Well, the cover did come with a packable pouch that fits fine in the saddlebags. I'm going to "Wing Ding" in South Carolina in July, so that will be my test for the UltraGard cover. I just use a old bed spread when at home in the garage. ;)
