2006 K1200LT Half Cover

I am looking to find a half cover for my new LT. I want it to be small so I can pack it on the bike, but protect it from elements at night . I have seen many on the net, but want one that fits just right. I do not want a full storage cover. If you have purchased one or know of a site that handles these please let me know...

Thanks and have a safe ride.

I don't know if this cover is the "best", but it certainly has worked well for us, and it is very compact.

Another vote on the EZ Touring Traveller. Works well for me. Good tight fit. Very easy to pack. Comes with very compact stuff sack.

I use a Geza Cover size "large". Works beautifully on the LT and is very compact. Geza has an XL cover available for the LT which provides full coverage, but is a little bulkier. The Geza covers are very compact and incredible quality. I've had many covers over the years and will never use anything but Geza in the future. The Large size cover will provide you about 3/4's coverage on the LT. Coverage is full in the front and a little more than 1/2 in the back. Material is very strechable. WRT the antenna, I run the cover between the top box and the antenna which results in the left pannier being the only painted part of the bike not covered. The cover stuffs in to a sock about 10" long and 4-5" diameter. Takes me all of 30 seconds to put the cover on and take it off and stuff in the sock. Cover is also rated to 80+ MPH for towing. I've towed a HD and Triumph several times with Geza covers and they performed flawlessly. I have no connection with Geza other than a satisfied customer.

I have one of these and have been real satisfied with it. Have used it thru two summers and its still like new. Packs up small and comes with carry bag. The large fits the LT like it was made for it. Check out the UV2000 here:

Is it the large cover you are using or extra large? I like the looks of this cover for the money

Sorry. it must have been the extra large. Been awhile since I bought it. Fits the windshield and the nose real nice. Covers the top case, but not the side cases. Price is pretty reasonalble too.

Hey, everyone:

Not to hijack the thread, but I'd like to know if any of the covers mentioned in the replies are suitable for an open trailer. I may be trailering to CCR, as my family is coming too, so I'm thinking of buying a Kendon, Port-a-Chopper, or Trailer-in-a-bag for the trip...haven't decided which yet. Suggestions would be most welcome.

I love my Geza cover, except for one thing - it's not waterproof. Otherwise, it's been great for the past 5 years. Also it would be the best choice for an open trailer, as it is stretchy and would minimize flapping.

It's time to replace it now, and I really want a waterproof half cover this time. The UV-2000 looks good, and at a decent price.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Talking Another vote for Tour King

I recommend the Tour King half cover as have a couple of others. It is inexpensive, fits well, rolls up very small for storage and mine has never leaked.

Did I mention it's cheap?

My vote is for the Nelson Rigg Half... I used it for 4 years and it kept my top side dry... But not dust free...depending on wind conditions.

I use the Nelson 1/2 and like it too...Only think I don't like about it is no additional scratch protection for the windshield area. I might try the Honda 1/2 cover I read about in this forum for my next cover.

Joe,
Ditto other recommendation on Geza cover for open air trailering. The Geza cover is guaranteed for trailering up to 80+ MPH. The Geza XL for the BMW K12LT provides full coverage to the floor. Though I haven't towed the BMW with the Geza cover, I have towed HD's for thousands of miles with the Geza cover with outstanding results. You will find that there are several securing loops at the bottom edge of the Geza covers. I zip tie these bottom loops to the trailer floor and literally put the bike in to a cocoon.

I have this one for my Sprint ST, and I think I will get one for the LT. It works great while traveling, and packs up into a small bag.

Geza

Howdy Tom,

I use the Geza cover. It's the right size, small, stows easily and has vents in the storage bag to help the moisture evaporate. I attach it to my top case rack/storage bag so it's out in the air.

As Ken mentioned, it's not "waterproof", it does however direct most of the water away. It will also keep frost/snow off the bike.

For me, the primary purpose of the cover is to "keep prying eyes off the farkle". If it rains and the bike gets wet, then I'm probably wearing rain gear anyway. If it's going to be a dry day, no rain gear, then I dry the seat and go.

I'll agree with Buddy, this is the best half cover I've found. It fits the LT like a glove, takes up very little space in the case.

Stay Away From Geza

I ride one of my bikes to work every day, year-round. I also cover them. In my travels, I cover them each night while on the road.

Dont' purchase a Geza. I thought that I wanted one for years. My wife purchased one for an anniversary present. Using it daily, the silicone, or teflon filler used in the material began to "flake out". Similar to dandruff falling from one's head. After only one month the Geza completely lost it's water resistance. Another problem, is that the thing soaks up about four gallons of water when it does rain. If you are on the road, you have to squeeze it out and stow it where it can dry. This make a couple of days.


I now have the Eztour, Traveller. So far, after about two years, this works fine. No concerns, other than the color fading.

Good luck.

Unhappy Half Cover

I left a message with EZ Touring company and did not get a return call. I guess they are out of business, or have more orders than they can fill.

I am going to be looking at a different cover.

We have a brand new GEZA including the stuff sack that we would sell for $150 plus shipping. It looks and works great on the LT. Received it as a gift and we already had one.

I have an EZ Traveller that is 6 years old. I have covered my K12RS with it and now my K12LT. It is black and has faded some, but still does the job. Folds up small in its case, takes up little room in my side case, and keeps prying eyes and dirt off the bike in the evenings.

Hi Allen,

I just came across your post and read that you had problems with the water repellency of your Geza Cover.

The LT covers are double bonded with Teflon to provide maximum water repellency without compromising breathability and towability. From your description, there seems to be a problem with the adherence of the Teflon to your cover.

Please send the cover back to us so we can evaluate the problem and correct it for you.

If you are not planning on towing your bike, we can waterproof the top of the cover for you. Towability is dependent on a percentage of fabric breathability to create a suction effect. Too much waterproofing reduces towing speeds by blocking air flow. To maintain a 85mph tow rating on the LT covers, we have to maintain an exact percentage of Teflon applied to the cover. Too much Teflon provides a higher rain repellency rating but limits tow speed ratings by decreasing the amount of air needed to pass through the cover to create a balanced air pressure effect. This is important to eliminate cover flapping.

Tell me what your needs are and we will configure your cover to best match it.

Our covers are built tough for daily real world use. In the event that a problem may arise, always contact us and let us know. We are here to make sure you are satisfied with your cover for as long as you own it which is why we offer you one of the most comprehensive warranties in the industry.

Best Regards,

John Meyer

I think the proper size cover for the LT is "Behemoth." Or is that for the 1800 'Wing? I'd get the largest one they make and you should be fine.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Geza cover

If anyone has a picture of an LT with a GEZA cover, could you post it?

Thanks,

From http://www.gezagear.com/cyclecoverfitting.htm#bmwfit:



I will say that if you hook the cover down below the saddlebags like in the picture, you will eventually stretch it out so that it gets rather thin up near the trunk. Admittedly, that is after two LTs and almost 5 years. I've been happy with my cover, but recently bought a different half cover as I wanted something waterproof and a bit smaller as swell. Trailering isn't an issue, and I'm less concerned about breathability in a half cover.

If you leave it up near the top of the saddlebags, then it fits over the radio antenna without needing to cut a hole. That also allows you to hook the two small loops over the saddlebag stops (the bolts that hold the tail light in) and effectively lock the cover to the bike. Not that I've ever had anyone try to steal it.

When you're ready to ride, fold the Geza cover approximately into thirds and stuff it between the trunk and passenger seat. Simple.

Thanks Ken. I have ordered my Geza and it should be here on Tuesday. I really like the looks of the cover and Tom at Geza Covers was extremely helpful.
