I ordered the SuperSport specific bike cover, Ducati part 97580071A. It's actually fairly nice, albeit made from thin but soft material. It's not for outdoor use and is basically a garage dust cover, which is what I expected and needed. I had already owned the Hypermotard one, so I knew what I was going to get. If you're in the market for a cover, then this is a good fitting one designed specifically for our bikes.

Takes only a few seconds to get it on and off. Hardest part is getting it over the mirrors. You have to s-t-r-e-t-c-h it over them, but it's a stretchy material, so it's ok.

Beautiful cover...

When traveling I have used a Geza cover for years, and been very happy with it.

It's an unmarked half cover that keeps the bike protected and prying eyes and hands off it, but packs very small to minimize taking up precious cargo space. I secure it with cable locks.

Here's a vid of a silver one being put on a BMW K13; mine is black that I used for my BMW K12. Although they are custom sized, I found that since they are stretchable, the same cover even fits my much smaller Scrambler. Have been meaning to try the cover on my SS, but haven't had a chance yet. I'm almost sure it will fit.

Geza doesnt show the SS listed yet as a custom cover, but since the fabric is flexible and stretchable, 1199 would probably be a close enough fit. Or call them if interested. I love mine.

I know all about Geza...I've had one for 12 years with fabulous results!! See attached pic of my bike at work. I use their cover at work and when traveling, but for winter storage or week long stints in the garage to keep the dust off, I wanted a full one that also covered the rims.

I will say this about them, though. Over the course of 3 weeks, I emailed 3 times, called 4 times, and left 2 voice mails BEFORE I finally got lucky to get someone to answer the phone. I simply wanted to order a new cover as mine was showing its age, finally. I gave Tom my order over the phone, but I feel like I may never receive it. He said there was a 3 week lead time. I'm not optimistic. I hope I'm wrong.

I have had the same on the garage shelf for a round two months now, after seeing your pics I decided to see how it fits. We have the very same cover. Think it needs a guard against the chain lube otherwise it is going to get messy. It fits better with the windscreen raised.

With my rear stand, there isn't a way for the chain to touch the cover, or at least not easily. Plus, I use a dry chain lube. But, I agree that the potential could exist. I still have my Hyper cover in the garage and it's clean. Which is good because it goes on eBay soon...along with all the C.F. parts I pulled off before trading it.

Yeah I noticed your pit stand helps, I use a different arrangement and the chain is uncovered. Perhaps some newspaper will do the trick, wrap it over the chain then all is good.

Checked, and the K12 Geza cover fits the SS well, and will be accompanying me on my next trip.

Those soft indoor covers are great. Especially for those who don't use their bike on a daily basis. Rather than collecting dust, it looks in pristine condition every time you want to take it for a ride.
Yeah, I'm a little anal about my bike looking beautiful at all times. Been that way for 30 years with lots of items around the house...just the way I was raised. Take care of it, and it will take care of you. Call me crazy...

My old man always told me when I was young "respect the bike, if you disrespect it then it will disrespect you in ways you will never forget" those words still ring in my ears when I ride after 35 years of riding.

I know you like pics of proof. Going for the spring Ducati ride this Sunday so it's had a good cleaning and is under cover. There's been 6 SS's sold since I acquired mine so it has to look good in case they join the spring ride. Mine being the first in Africa.

Quick question to all...

If you had one choice of using front wheel stand or rear paddock stand ,
What one would it be and why?

oh wow that could generate only two views. Much like the red or white. I use the abba skylift if I want the wheels off the ground. The chock is for ride in and ride out . Much easier setup for me.
