Good motorcycle cover?

Tried to do a search and didn't come up with anything.

Can anybody recommend a good brand of cover, I need to sling something over it as I head into winter and I don't feel like paying $140 because it says Triumph yet has less protection than others.

During the winter it's kept inside a dry(ish) garage that doesn't get below freezing.

Thanks!

2003 Suzuki GSX1300R

Theory is when you know everything, but nothing works. Practice is when everything works but you don't know why. In my shop theory and practice are combined, nothing works and I don't know why.

I used to use a Dowco. I'd make sure that the cover allows it to breathe a bit. Don't need any moisture under the cover.

Old sheets. They breath, keep the dust off and cost nothing.

You must be one of those ritzy types with one of these "garages" I hear so much about.
