Vetter-style fairing pocket cover

Post by wgrever » Mon Jul 18, 2016 10:46 am

The Vetter Windjammer fairings used on the early Goldwings had a vinyl cover over the left side storage area. These covers had a built-in 'hidden' pocket which was very handy for lose change and a cassette tape. Does anyone make a cover that has a similar hidden pocket feature for the left side storage area of GL1500 fairings?

I don't know about a hidden pocket but Hopnel makes fairing pocket covers with extra pockets on them.

I have one of the Hopnel ones. It works fine - the pocket is on top, rather than hidden, but it's still handy. I only store sunglasses, gas receipts, a baggie for my GPS, etc. in it, but nothing valuable. No one's ever bothered with it.
