This guy is on the Moto Guzzi forum I frequent. I have not personally purchased from him, but have read good things.

First, are you riding still? Or stopping...covering the beautiful seat?
I hate riding in the rain....Especially with the squirming 21s.
Anyway, I have a small Dowco bike cover that just covers partially the fairing, seat and fenders of bike....It's frinken waterproof though....Small in size, but keeps the bike dry....Proven on last year's Lake George trip, where it rained cats and dogs....Pixs included later if interested? Good luck.

Mustang use to make seat covers for their seats, but, I do not think they are for when your rear is already covering the seat. One’s I saw were wayyyy too baggie, look like they would scratch the shirt out of the tank, side covers and bags.

Just looking for something when my bike is parked and sometimes get cought without my cover which is usually at my hotel or home during a trip, when I stop just to cover it because of the deep scoop on the seat water will pool up on it, used to us a garbage bag but wanted something a little better I can keep in my saddlebag.

We like the Exigent seat rain covers. They pack real small, do what they are supposed to, and seem well made. We first found them at Americade. exigentbikecovers.com.

Ah. That is a little different. How about a backpack cover?

$10 for this one. Just find one that fits the approximate measurements of your seat.

I didn't want my custom seat in the rain while hauling a bike so I put it in a sleeping bag sack and clicked it back onto the bike.
