1/2 bike cover

I was at a BMW rally and saw an awesome 1/2 cover on a K1600. It fit perfectly. Has anybody on here found a very well fitted 1/2 cover for the FJR? If so, can you post pics?
Thanks,

GypsyGiuseppe

The Nelson Rigg half cover fits well.

XL size, mine is. Interesting I ordered mine from Revzilla, a friend, at the same time, ordered one $5 cheaper on amazon. Fulfilled by amazon, from a bike shop . His looks like a import knockoff, almost see through, mine has a black backing. Same part numbers, same size. Mine came with a black nelson-rigg carrying pouch, his with a cheap almost mylar pouch. Both covers say Nelson-Rigg, so who knows?

Nelson Rigg sells one. Itís superb. Then I figured out that their full cover packs just as small. Now thatís all I use.

No commercials. No dictators.

Yup, my full size Nelson Rigg packs into a cylinder about 12" x 7".

$40 Ultraguard 4-458G in charcoal from Amazon. I have mirror stalk extensions and larger windshield. While I don't have to, I prefer to fold in the mirrors. This is a light weight cover. Have had it for last two seasons.

Fits like a glove, custom made for your model, with/without topbox. Different fabric choices to fit your needs. I use for 2 of my bikes.

I looked at Geeza when they were offering a $100 discount for all IBR riders for the then-current rally. Still too costly for me and doesn't pack as small as the Tourking. I think I mentioned I could get 4 Tourkings for 1 (discounted) Geeza. Given how long one lasts, it will be many years before I get to the break-even point.

Ridden wet. Put up hard.

Bounce, I just checked the Tour Kings website, and to be honest their covers look like big garbage bags 😞 there's got to be some other product that look more decent at a good price, i would like something similar to Geeza's.
