Cover for K1200LT

Hi All,
Unfortunately I have had to remove my bike from dry storage and keep it on my front drive.
So I wanted to get a good cover for it.
After much searching I have found a supplier who sells covers which will fit the LT.
The make of cover is "Held" the size I purchased was an XL we tried the XXL but it was a bit on the big side and I didn't want a cover that flapped around in the wind.
The name of the company I used was " GetGeared" www.GetGeared.co.uk.
Lucky for me they have a shop near Leatherhead in Surrey which is very near me.
I dealt with Roger, he was very helpful and helped try the covers on the bike so I could be sure that I got a good fit.
The cost was £54.95.
Just waiting for the storm that's forecast for Monday night to see if it stays on OK.

Wise choice Ron,I used the exact same cover up scotland during that bad storm we had a couple of months ago.Hurricane force winds and rain and the bike remained dry throughout.You will be happy with it

Hi,
I don't know if they ship abroad I am surprised that you are not able to get a suitable cover in the USA.
Drop them an email they are very helpful.
