Re: Recommendations on Cover for the LT

I use an Ultra guard half cover for my LT. I think it is called an classic half cover? I don't remember the exact name or where I got it. Just covers the top half of the bike so I don't have to worry about hot exhausts etc. Great for rallies etc to keep the sun and dew off of your bike/seat. Thin it was fairly inexpensive too.

Re: Recommendations on Cover for the LT

My bike sets out all winter in Florida, & my old cover had some holes in it. So, I got a Dowco 50021-00 a few months ago. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000GVEW8O/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 . It is easy to put on with the zipper... But then ... I took my antenna off years ago, so I don't have to work around it. It is a little big to use traveling, but it is a nice cover.

I've had a Traveller for nearly 6 years and it packs small and works well for touring.

Re: Recommendations on Cover for the LT

Wile traveling, I use the Ultragard 1/2 cover too. I removed the hooks and replaced with light weight rope and loops to attach over foot pegs. My buddy has a GW and tried on the LT, fit great, packs small with carrying pouch. Came from Motorcycle Superstore.

Re: Recommendations on Cover for the LT

It depends on what you want the cover for. Just to cover the bike up at work of for traveling. I have just a cheap cover from Menards that I use to cover the bike up at work so the sun doesn't beat it to death. It doesn't pack down very small for traveling so I also have a half cover that I can use for touring.

Re: Recommendations on Cover for the LT

Geza makes a great cover but is expensive.
I had a Dowco cover for a few years as well.

My current cover- 5 year old $35 no frills cover from Wally World! Works well enough to keep the dew off the bike in the morning.

Cool Re: Recommendations on Cover for the LT

I did a lot of research a few months back to find the ideal cover that I wanted for taking cross country. The cover had to be light weight, cover my entire 2007 LT, and pack very small. Most full size covers are big, bulky, and heavy. I finally settled on the Aerostich extra large cover. It folds up into an attached pocket so you don't need to lug around a case foe it and it is almost perfectly made for the shape of the bike. Two issues - it is expensive (around $154, and you need to remove and stow the antenna. I am very pleased with it and look forward taking it cross country this summer. Good lick on your search for one meeting your needs!
