I've got one that I can sell for $25 plus actual postage. Almost new, used one time. I have two other covers, only reason I'm selling this one.

PM for details if interested.

Thumbs up

You don't want a full cover, I have used this one fron Nelson Rigg and it's perfect for on the road covering. Takes up very little space. The BMW cover is very heavy and bulky, only good for long term storage like over the winter.
XL size fits great.

I use the 1/2 cover for most times including trips. I use a full cover I bought at Wal-mart for large bikes for $25-30 (can't remember exactly) for Winter storage. I put grommets in to go over my antenna's. You can get plastic ones that work great (harbor freight sells them).

Bimirider,

Bob's BMW is who I tried to buy one from online. They told me yesterday that BMW no longer offers this cover and I was wondering if anyone new of a dealer with one left. Thanks for the information on the Wal-Mart one though because I might just look at getting one for the Winter months here. My brother has the BMW cover and that is the cover that I would like to purchase. I guess I will keep looking... Thanks for the information...

EZ Touring Traveller Cover for K1200LT

My BMW and DOWCO full-size covers stay home.

Prefer the EZ Touring Traveller half-cover.
Protects everything, yet packs small.

dressers and it fits perfect and is real light weight and perfect for travel.

I have a GezaGear cover that I paid a bit more than $18 for, but it's very good, packs small and doesn't scratch anything.

I have the Geza and like it. Kind of high end, but works very well, quick on and off and stores about the size of a small loaf of bread. Keeps most rain off, but breathes, preventing condensation and rust. No antenna hole provided, but I had that done at a local seamstress shop for $6.

bike cover

I have a full size Nelson Rigg - nice cover, but is a little bulky. I am planning a summer trip with my wife, so storage space is an issue. Do most people use a cover when touring? Are there any creative ways to pack a cover without taking up precious trunk space?

Most of the time when I see an LT parked for the night, it's under cover of some sort. May be due to wx, or the environment, dunno. I take an EZ Touring cover (lightweight and small bundle) with me and ole Toad. It lives between the trunk and the passenger seat 'buttrest', below the backrest. Coupla other thangs live there also, that don't take up inside space (extry pair of gloves, Frogg Togg outfit, and a smallish first aid kit.

Re: Looking to Buy K12LT Cover

I have an OEM full size BMW cover that has both openings in back for two antenna's. Don't use it because it is garage kept and two bulky to take on trips. In perfect shape and not used ever. Make me an offer.

Re: Looking to Buy K12LT Cover

Purchased a used DAWCO XL cover off ebay this fall. The winter cover, heaviest one they make (perfect size and material thickness). It only cost me $25 w/ship and I hear they have lifetime guarantees. Fits bike perfectly, did take the antenna off but that just screws off at the base. The thing looks new, stored for winter. Might buy a new or used light weight DAWCO for traveling to keep moisture off bike while lodging. Its a pain to wipe down the bike in the morning if parked outside.
