Weather-proof cover

Does anyone know where I can get a weather-proof cover for a satellite radio?

I have the original sportster, but I think it's about the same size as a number of other units out there.

It would be nice if there were a cover with a clear face that you could leave on in the rain and still be able to use the radio. I've seen XM kits that include a cover like this, but I haven't been able to find the cover sold separately.

The one on cyclegadgets.com is the one I'm looking for, but I only see it as part of a package on the web-site. I'm probably just missing it.
I'll call them to see if it's available separately.
Thanks Keith.

I don't have a picture but I use one of those free shower caps that you find in motel rooms and a rubber band. They pack well and go on in a flash and don't interfere with the buttons. And did I say they were FREE?

I use a ziplock and a rubber band. Still very usable and cost effective, granted it's not the best looking option.

I have one of the original Sirius AudioVox. and I don't bother covering it. I have it mounted off a BMR shelf and Have the hood on the top. If the rain is really driving so bad that the front is really getting wet I turn it off. Otherwise I let it go. Haven't had an issue yet and I do quite a bit of rain riding. I leave it on when it's parked on the center or side stand and it hasn't really been an issue. Originally I was really worried about it but the LT has a some pretty good protection under the windscreen. Of course if you have the radio out on a RAM mount off the clutch or hand brake.. that is another thing altogether..
