I need to buy a cover for my '07 GW. I don't mind paying a little extra for quality.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Jerry :)

Welcome!

Half or full cover? The full covers are huge and almost impossible to travel with. The full covers for the Wing are the size of two man tents! LOL...

I like the Ultra Guard half cover. It's heavy enough but small enough to travel with.

Red, Not necessarily so.
I have a full nylon cover that's light with a draw string around the bottom and can be folded up really small.
It has a heat shield material around the bottom that can prevent the GL1800 hot pipes from melting the material.
I carry mine in a mesh liner in my side saddle, and wouldn't leave home without it.

What brand is it? I have owned Hondaline, Kury, H-D, Dowco, Ultraguard, and Geeza full covers. All were huge except the Geeza and it's not water resistant.

I'm not sure, bikes parked downtown in my folks garage for the winter.

Cover

I was looking for a full nylon cover color matched to my 2006 Wing in Black Cherry. I found one very close made by Nelson-Rigg. Wraps around bike nicely. Can be folded up in a small storage bag. Has grommets to prevent blow off. Good all purpose cover.

I chose a 1/2 cover. Easier to get on and off. Folds up into a smaller bundle.

Keeps the sun and the kids off of the bike. Keeps the seat dry if it rains.
