on 7 July 2014
First of all: When I received the cover, there was damage to the edge of one of the vent flaps. Admittedly, this was cosmetic but nonetheless, it spoiled the look. I called the supplier and rather than go through the hassle of returning the cover, paying postage etc, they agreed to refund me £5. I still haven't received this. I have now had the cover for nearly six months and the seam tapes are disintegrating - the tape adhesive has literally turned to dust and the tape itself so brittle that you can easily tear it with your fingers. This is a real shame as the actual cover fabric quality seems good. The cover is on my BMW R1150GS and is kept outside on the north side of the house (i.e. not in direct sunlight). Even if it was in direct sunlight, an "all weather cover" should be able to cope with this, otherwise it is not "fit for purpose" implicit in the product despription. Very disappointed but, as there doesn't seem to be any real alternative for covering a large bike with panniers and top box, I'll have to repair / replace the seam tapes. A potentially good product seemingly let-down by the manufacturer apparently cutting corners by using poor quality tape and adhesive. Why, when the actual cover material is obviously of good quality!!!
