This is the fourth cover purchased for my GL1500 and the first waterproof one. The fit is very good and it is easy to put on and off. It does fill up my left saddle bag compartment more than the previous light duty covers, but the extra protection offered during this winter which the bike must spend outside is worth it. I hope this cover will hold up to the California sun better than the previous covers. Note in the photos that I have removed the antennas, as I rarely use the radios on the road.
Time will tell if this can survive a Texas summer but so far so good. It took 3 tries to find a cover that would fit a '78 Goldwing with a Kutter fairing and two suitcase saddlebags but the tech help was able to connect me with a perfect fit. Forget using the "perfect match" function! Once I got it onto the bike it was a breeze. Thanks for the great suggestion!...........JB
I bought this for my "90" Vmax, going off what size the site said fit my bike. Forgetting I changed my handlebars last year to a wider bar. Not 100% the Large will work for a Vmax, I returned it for a XL. Sizing on box said it should be an XL also vs. the Large of the product fitment on the Dennis Kirk site. Product looks great and comes with a small (very small) storage bag. If you part your bike outside I would highly recommend this cover. Waterproof, and not black so as to attact nearly as much heat. It has 4 small bungies to attach to itself or your bike. Nice breathing area for moisture to escape also. For bike covers this by far is the best I have owned, hoping it last more than 4 years/ summers only... And no more running to the back yard shed....
This cover does NOT fit my GL1500 SE. To get the back end to fit, the front of the cover will not pull down over the front wheel. The windshield is even 1-1/2 inches shorter than stock. The soft liner does not match up with the windshield. The cover also puckers up badly across the top, which will create birdbaths in the rain. (see photos) Too bad about the poor fitment on my Goldwing as the material looks to be of high quality and durable. I am returning this Defender 500 for a refund.
