EZ Touring covers
We washed our EZ Touring “The Traveller” motorcycle cover after returning from Florida as it had some salt spray on it and was looking a little grungy. As we were drying it, my wife commented that must be she didn’t get the soap rinsed off it well as it was flaking off. I looked more closely and saw it was a coating on the fabric that was flaking off. So, looks like time to retire the cover. I then started to think that it had held up reasonably well for 13 years given the number of trips we have taken and the number of days and nights it is sat in the sun and rain and wind, but thought it would hold up a little longer than that.
As I was ordering a new one, I noticed that the size recommended for BMWs with a top case is size A, but I had a size X. Hmmm... I then noticed what size X fits and my memory was instantly jogged. And Linda’s recollection then concurred with mine. We actually bought this cover in 1987 when we bought our Kawasaki Voyager and took our first ever tour to Salt Lake City. When we bought the LT, we tried the cover and it fit pretty well (just a touch large) so we didn’t need to buy a new one. So, this cover is actually 33 years old! I feel much better now about how well it has held up and buying a new one. Although, it seems a little sad to retire a cover that has covered (pun intended) my entire motorcycle touring career. This cover has been to Newfoundland, Alaska, around the entire US and now to Key West. It is a well traveled Traveller!
So, just a little endorsement for the good ladies at EZ Touring.
