Wondering if anyone uses a half moisture / dust cover on their LT when traveling? Is it worth the storage space?

Thumperjon;

I have used a Traveller for over 2 years and 18,000 miles. Works as advertized. Can be tucked in the space behind the SO seat ( as long as you moved the seat back the 1 1/2" ).

I use one two, I put it in one of the side cases, doesn't take up much room at all.

Bowdon - love the avatar, I didn't know who it was until tonight, just watched the movie! Excellent movie!

Yes, I use a Traveller from E-Z Touring (if memory serves).

Yes, it is worth using. Keeps prying eyes away from the bike, keeps bird droppings off and keeps things pretty dry after a rain or heavy dew.

I store mine in the Kathy's Journey bag I bought for my trunk rack. It fits along with rainsuits and other things that I need quick access to.

Ditto on the Traveller. Keeps the prying eyes off. But be careful if you are in the south west during a wind storm. Mine blew over from the side stand and the Traveller helped. I left it off the next two days and they ransaked my tank bag, but only lost a really nice tire pressure gage.

About the size of a soda can...works great and it's enough to keep things out of sight.

EZTouring Traveler, a great product.
Works on both my bikes and wouldn't be without it.............
A few years back I met the owner of EZTouring riding his GS and testing a new product.
THE OWNER TESTING A NEW PRODUCT !!!!!
Where we were headed, he said campgrounds would be full but we were welcome to pitch tents in his back yard.
Made a customer for life.........................

Hello, I use the Nelson/Rigg UV2000 1/2 cover.. it not only stores behind the back seat and does a great job of covering almost the entire bike windshiled and all.. it has loops on it that go over the pegs so it will not flap or come off.. Light silver that reflects heat and snug so water does not pool !

Another vote for the Nelson/Rigg half cover (XL). Love it, and very compact.

But the cover in the picture doesn't fit your bike. :confused:

Another vote for the EZ Touring half-cover. Once I saw the quality of the product, I bought their full-size cover, also. Different tools for different uses. They both pack down pretty small, and are very rugged.

EZ Touring half cover. Works as advertised, lasts many years.

Nice to leave my helmet an other gear on the seat under the cover too.

E-Z Touring Traveler.
Strong, light, waterproof, packs small, protects what's under the cover from the elements.
Replaced my BMW and Dowco covers; good protection. Just too bulky to carry.
Almost 11 years of experience using the Traveler on my LT.
Ride to work almost every day, year round.
Bike is always covered about ten hours a day, five days a week, in the parking lot.
UV will eat it up, so it gets replaced every 18 months.
Great customer service.
Got one for my Adventure, too.

I use a CoverMax half cover, XL. Packs small. I haven't tried fitting it behind the rear seat. It would probably fit, but since I haven't moved the top case, it won't. Found it pretty cheap on ebay with free shipping.

+1 for the Nelson Rigg half cover. I marked the rear of it with a marking pen so I would get it the right way around the first time. Folds up into a "bum bag" style bag that I sometimes use to carry misc stuff.

Cheers
