Putting on and off is a breeze and the bag conforms to whatever you put in it. I like the super tough material so you don't worry about hitting a bush and tearing. Unlike the hard cases, this won't crack and the mounts don't break. The only drawback is having to use seam sealer (provided). It took me three nights to seal all of the stitching.

Dowco Ultralite Motorcycle Cover A full-size, lightweight polyester travel cover for economical use Urethane coating protects against dirt, pollution, harsh sunlight and light rain Dries faster than heavier polyester covers One sewn-in vent flap lets moisture escape Elastic shock cord hem at front and rear Convenient storage bag Available in sizes to fit most motorcycles Two-year limited warranty Please Note Sizes listed in Size Chart are for stock motorcycles without additions such as panniers, windshields, high handlebars or sissy bars. Addition of those options will typically require a jump of one to two sizes. Size MD - developed to fit Sportsters, Dynas, and older CB-series motorcycles Size LG - developed to fit 1983 Goldwing Interstate, a bike with fairly slim panniers and very small top box Size XL - developed to fit 1984 Goldwing interstate and Yamaha Venture, with full-size top boxes

Easy to use and fit is good. Have to let exhaust cool first which
is to be expected. Has tie down so won't blow away and little stuff for storage.
