Recommendation for a good cover

I'm finding it difficult to find a decent cover for my Versys 650. I returned one to the store because it didn't fit right. I bought another at Amazon, it fits, but it's really cheap. (and I don't think it breaths...and it doesn't have vents) It feels plastic rather than cloth on the inside.

The windshield seems to be causing size problems. I don't have the LT cases, but wouldn't mind a cover that would allow room for some soft bags. It will mostly be used for winter storage under a car port.

Here's one I'm interested, but I've never heard of the company.

Can anyone recommend a cover that fits right, and has vents and seems to be very good quality?

I have the Neilson-Rigg Defender Extreme Adventure cover. Fits well, vented, tie down strap and eyelets etc. Bought in Australia for $139.95 which I consider good value. No doubt US prices will be lower. Covers bigger screen and Shad 45 top box.

Thanks, I found it on Amazon for $70 USD.

Anyone else?

Tour Master Elite Cover.....Had several others but they couldn't handle the California sun and would crumble after a few months. Had this one a few years now and no issues....

Dowco Guardian WeatherAll Motorcycle Cover 50002-03 (Medium)

Dowco Guardian UltraLite Plus Motorcycle Cover 26045-00 (Adventure Touring)

I have both of these and they fit very well, with just enough room to cover my side cases too. They cover more than a half cover, but they don't wrap around the entire bottom of the bike, and the front wheel and fender are exposed. I'd call them kind of a 3/4 cover. I like that they aren't as baggy though. The first is heavier weight and more water resistant. The second is very lightweight and more packable.

I have one from CYCLE GEAR, in AZ and in BC, but they're only on during the appropriate six months THAT particular V gets stored (INSIDE the garage!). They've worked PDG for me.

Unless you are going to have a cat under the carport to keep rodents away, I would recommend parking the bike in an enclosed tent for the winter.
