Covers for the 919?

I need to get a cover for my bike (building a garage isn't an option btw.) Can anyone out there suggest a good cover for a 919? It's for daily year round use, and does not need to be lightweight and packable, but instead heavy duty and durable and functional are what I am looking for. I'm also keen to know sizing also. Thanks.

I use a "geazagear" cover, but its not at all what you're looking for. Real light weight, 1/2 cover, I use it in the winter time inside a garage. Really can't help ya with what you're after.

Contact me for AMSOIL products!

If it ain't broke, keep fixing it 'till it is...

I had a Dowco for over 10 years and used it in dirty conditions and outdoors when in college. It kept the dust and rain off really well. Nice and heavy. I gave it to my Brother in law when I sold him my CBR. It fit that bike better than my 9er otherwise I would have kept it. Right now, using a Nelson Rigg. It has very generous coverage, has heat panels built in for side pipes, but is lighter in weight. I have been using it in my garage for 3 years so I can't speak to it's weather repelling abilities. I think you would be fine with either of those brands, but would lean towards Dowco.

I park mine in my living room. Ride it in the front door and out the back door. Way better than a cover could ever be. Just have to clean the floors a little more often.

I have a Formosa cover I ordered from Amazon, I use it in my garage for winter, it's pretty heavy, good material.
