    I see there was one mention of Dowco. I have a handful of Dowco covers, no packable traveling covers, but big (X-LG) and medium sized ones. I got into them after reading rave reviews about Dowco's customer service.

    I have the cover made by BMW. It has an expandable section for when the top box is on the bike. When the box is not in use the extra material is secured by a zipper.
    My bike gets the sun only in the morning. Twice I've had the cover tear when the material just seemed to lose its strength. Luckily, it was covered by a two year warranty and BMW replaced both times. Both times the tears occurred after about a year of use. Both times the tears were on the side of the cover that's out of the sun, so it wasn't due to UV damage.

    My daughter has a cover made by Sealskin. It's over a year old now, and except for the dirt/dust that's landed on it, it feels and looks like new. When my cover gives up again, I'll probably replace it with one made by this company.

    Both of these covers are fairly bulky, and would not be my first choice for traveling.

    Covers

    It's nice to have bike covered, it's nice to have the storage space the cover takes when not using. The covers cost $20 to $100+ ? It just looks like another thing the drug addicts can or will steal and sell or trade to get more drugs.

I figure it might discourage someone from doodling around with controls, etc. if they have to untie and lift a cover. It is easy & quick to pack up and measures about 6X6 inches.

    I second the cyclegear covers. Mine has been through 3 seasons, and plenty of storms... and even one nosy raccoon walking around on it.. at least I think from the tracks. Anyway, for like $30 bucks they wear well, and cover my bike with all the luggage, and drybag on the back seat.
