Oxford Stormex Bike Cover
« on: Apr 01, 2019, 09:06 PM »
Hi
Just moved to north wales but no longer have a garage just wondered if anyone has the Oxford Stormex Bike Cover and if so which size fits the 2010 Versys 650 with a GIVI touring screen. Read some reviews and seem to hover between large and XL large, I don't want it to be to baggy and flapping in the wind, my versys does not have panniers or top box but as mentioned above I have the Givi tall screen fitted.

Thanks

I have the same question. I think because of the screen the XL has to be the answer - but I think the remainder then will flap in the wind or drag on the floor. I mailed Oxford two days ago and I am yet to receive a response.  :180:

I will add to this post should they ever respond.

Looks like the XL to me (although the L also go a  :152: in the same thread).

Hi oneloosenut

Cheers for the reply, no I hadn't read the thread thanks for pointing it out, looks like the extra large to be safe. I read some reviews that mentioned the odd one had the  seam tape come loose but mainly the reviews were very good, I'd like it to cover the wheel discs so probably the XL.

Said it before and will say it again.
If you spray your bike with Scottoiler FS365 then it won't go rusty, but if you cover your wet bike and the air does not get to it then it will rust.
Bike covers are great for keeping dust off when parked in a shed or garage but other than that forget it.

Hi mac one

thanks for your reply, are you a member of mensa? the idea is if you come home and your bike is wet let it dry off before you cover it up, the oxford stormex has vents with flaps over them by the mirrors.

If you want a good cover invest in a bike garage maybe.

Yes I'm having one built in a few months the stormex is to tide me over as I live half a mile from the sea with quite a bit of air born sand.

Hi
Took delivery of the XL Oxford Stormex Bike Cover, I can confirm with a Givi touring screen the Xl covers  the MK2 Versys about 2" short of the ground and completely covers the wheel disc's. Seems well made.
