I'm looking for a good quality cover that fits the SR well. Ideas?

Just about any good bike cover works, my daughter picked up a "Bilt" cover from Cyclegear it worked just fine, she had a GS500 suk. ;)

After having a cover that 'fit well' and one that is for a bigger bike I like the bigger, looser fit one for getting it on/off with the least amount of trouble. It also fits over with stuff strapped on the bike.

I also agree.
I got a Simoniz brand cover,that is sized for Geezer Glides, and it is easy to put,on and take off.
I need to replace it next year because,of a couple of rips and burns.(darn my impatience)
It fits over the,bike and saddlebags and goes almost to the ground.

Ive used Gorilla Tape on the inside to patch some smallish rips (not one to give up on a cover too soon ;) ) If you dont want to buy the GT use regular duct tape. If it is from a hot exhaust and you might do it again maybe some of that furnace man's alum.(?) skinned tape might work, but it is expensive (better if you know a furnace guy to get a few feet from than have to buy a roll).
