Iíve got three of these covers, one for each of my bikes. They are great covers for long term storage like off riding season. Very well made using good heavy materials but, way to heavy to take on the road with you. Park the bike on the bottom piece and zip it up tight or just through the top over the bike for the night without the bottom piece for pretty damn good protection in or out of the garage.

I want it more because during riding season I park the bike in my driveway off season I keep it in a garage. Is it durable for using every day opening and closing also when parking I always turn my wheel to the left because driveway is on a slight incline

The zipper on these covers are pretty heavy duty. I have not had one fall apart on me yet and have been opening and closing them for a couple years now. Keep in mind I donít use the zippers when only parking for the night but probably am opening and closing them every couple weeks or so. Turning the front tire while parked under cover hasnít seemed to created much wear but you do need to protect the bottom piece from the kickstand. The cover comes with a rubber pad for that purpose. I have had a few different cover over the years and would say the Tes has been the best cover Iíve owned yet but, then again, theyíve also been the most expensive covers Iíve purchased. And by the way, they are water proof if that matters to you.

Well damit

My Dowco/Guardian cover just arrived today, I would have spent the extra dollars on this cover but did not know about it!!!!

The Guardian is a nice cover but my storage building has a condensation problem....

When I’m on the road as we all know it’s important to travel as light as possible.And I can be a cheap ass.Your dealership will have dozens of nice Tyvek covers that they use for shipping the bikes from the Moco I bet they will give them to you for free if you ask nice I’ve taken mine on the road for years.I also have a proper cover for winter storage

I have the New Model TES Cover and I can say that it is extremely well made.
The inner material will shed for a while and get all over the paint.
But after time it seems to have stopped shedding.
It was no big deal just a nuisance to keep cleaning the Glide.
One thing I found, while using the kickstand, I have to pull closer to the right side so I have enough room for the zipper to pass on the left side near the kickstand.
If You have a center stand I'm sure it would be much better.
All in All it is a very nice Motorcycle Cover.
Best of Luck on Your decision.
