You could have a look here:-

I've got one for my 1800 and they're good. I paid rather more than this price :)tap
Paul(Shinywing) will probably be at the British Treffen but definitely will be at Llandudno Light Parade.

If you order anything you want Paul will bring it to Llandudno for you. I think he maybe going to some of the other light parade's as well.

Why not contact Paul and ask about postage costs. I'm sure if you spend 100 Euros, postage is free. Not difficult to spend another 37 Euros on bling at Shinywing. :)thumbs
Paul confirmed he will be at Kelso if that helps.

Well to be honest, Its not for a Goldwing its for a Valkyrie interstate. The only wing I have is a plain jane 1100 and don't really need any bling for that

If you do an Ebay search for "large motorcycle dust cover" there are loads will come up, some with free postage from about £8.99. I have a couple of cheap ones and they work fine on the odd occasion I need to use them.

I got some from lidl or aldi last year for about £8 and they are great as dust covers but not really fully waterproof even though they profess to be just that.
They had them in Holland last week so may well be over here soon as we are a bit behind them usually.

Thanks, I looked on ebay but its finding one that will fit a Valk interstate. I recon a GL1800 one will fit.

The large ones are usually pictured on a large bike like a Wing, probably an 1800 and the ones I got fit over the 1800 just fine, covering it well.

Treating them with a tent waterproof spray would probably help in making them more watertight, if the bike is to be left outside.

When I was looking for a cover for my Valk, I opted for an UltraGard cover, even though I mainly use it as a dust cover in the garage, it does offer the option of using it outside if needed.
I got the UltraGard 4-444BC, and covers the Valk totally, and neatly too.
Here's a couple of places you can get them:-
cyclemax.com/inc/sdetail/ultragard_touring_bike_cover/126/94256
shinywing.com/covers-luggage-and-pouches...r-classic-p-137.html
www.cruiseraccessoriesonline.com/product..._Charcoal-756-1.html


Or, if what you want is just a dust cover, I found one of them too (just remember you get what you pay for)
