Honda ones are hard to find. Most people loose them over time. Here are a few aftermarket ones.

Looking for an OEM one myself in brown for my 91SE.
If anyone has a brown one, please PM me.
Was speaking with my 19yr old son today: he has no idea what 'vertical hold' refers to.

There was a black one on eBay a few weeks ago from one of the bike disassemblers who sell on eBay. The asking price was $95.00 as I recall. :o

There was a New Original Stock one on eBay too, all wrapped nicely in its Honda polythene.
I would have happily paid too much for it, if it were the correct brown for my bike.

I ordered an extra cover for mine from www.goldwingonline.com. It was on sale for $28.35 I thought too good a deal to pass up.

Stated from the Show Chrome add: "...made from impact resistant durable smoke poly carbonate and its transparent design is an instant match to any GL1500 Gold Wing."

I have my original, but since I did all the work replacing the lights in the radio with bright LED's I thought this might look nice if you can see the radio lit up under the cover. We'll see. If not I might paint it. Not sure yet. If I do, I'll post a picture.
