    A picture of the bikes with covers working for a living. Heavy thunderstorm at our camp site just outside Prague in 2011, nice sunset as well.
    Bike behind has a Jess top box so guess it will fit those as well.

    Let me know if you want to drop over and have a look at the covers. I know it will fit the ADV top box ok.

    Nice meeting you Jamie. Enjoyed the chat and thanks for letting me use your bike for some pictures and the suggestions on the hiviz jacket and tool bags. Will see what we can come up with. Hope you got home before it got too cold.
    Any problems with the cover you know where I am.

    Mine came today,

    Must say a very good quality item and great instructions on best to fit to the bike.

    Very well packed too.

    My wife gets all of the stuff I get sent to her work and the blokes there were asking if you do the cover for other bikes? So a good little winter project for your other half

    Thank you both for making this

    Got mine last week but haven't had a chance to fit it until now.

    TT could learn a lot from you about how to produce clear, easy to follow instructions!!

    Great bit of kit for touring (or shopping!), lock up helmets and jackets then just pop the cover over, doubles as a waterproof cover as well as keeping stuff out of sight.

    Thanks Ted!

    Will send you pictures of mine on a 650. Using Ventura Rack so a bit of a stretch and happy to make minor mods, but looking at the BMW catalogue the standard vario box appears to be in the same place as the 12 in relation to the seat.
    Great quality.

    Great quality.
    Will also post a piccy, when I can get in the garage. Again on a 650GS Twin

    Great quality.
    On a standard 1200 GS/GSA the distance from box mount to bars is 49ins (old money) exactly the same as on the 800/650 twins but on the 650 single it's 44ins.
    Got a couple left if any one uses their bikes over winter, usefull if parking up keeps the rain off and seat dry.
    Will be making them as needed now till new year.
    Thanks All
