I purchased a new Geza Gear (GEZA GEAR | Stretch Fit Custom Motorcycle Covers) cover for the SS and received it a couple days ago. I've had one of their covers for over 12 years and for all those years, I've consistently bragged and recommended their products to others. I simply wanted a new one as the old one was seriously starting to show its age, finally. The covers and the material they use is second to none.

If you remember, I posted up about the Ducati OEM cover already (http://www.ducatisupersport939.net/forum/121-ducati-supersport-939-parts-accessories/6321-supersport-bike-cover.html) but that cover is a dust cover for garage use only. The Geza Gear cover is for use at work, in the outdoor elements, and is UV and water resistant. Its also towable up to 95 MPH. Great stuff, hands down.

With ALL THAT said, I had a terrible experience on this reorder...and they were fully aware of my long term relationship with their products and my consistent recommendations!!! First, they quoted my a 2-3 week lead time. After three weeks, I called to check status as I hadn't received the product yet. After exactly 4 calls, 2 voicemails, and 1 email, they finally returned my messages with a statement that they would check on my order. They didn't call me back...I had to attempt to contact them, again!! Over the course of two more weeks and 3 more phone calls and two more broken promises and a couple extra excuses thrown in, I gave up...expecting to never receive it and seriously disappointed in their service. I was actually now pissed because of all my years of recommendation, I felt were unwarranted and undeserved!! Low and behold, it showed up...finally...after 5 weeks and 5 days...and no prior notification or contact from them. They came through, but I cannot any longer recommend them for their terrible customer service. I'm now very leery of their long term warranty as I feel their business is on the line or something. Maybe its a one-man business...IDK. That's just my feeling and very well may not be the case, but they certainly are experiencing issues of some sort.

Bottom line: I feel like the ONLY reason I have a cover is through my own personal persistence, NOT their desire to sell me a cover!!! That's a shame!!

I'm glad I got a cover from them and I hope it lasts as long as the last one, but I'm not hopeful. Still, the product looks and feels like the real deal, so time will tell. Anyway, pics attached.

As also discussed elsewhere I love the product too...including it being semi-stealth.

Have not ordered one, however, for many years and will use my K1200S on the SS. Too bad about service, such a great product for its intended use.

I was looking to purchase a Nelson-Rigg cover for my Aprilia Caponord as the one I had was weatherbeaten and tearing up. So I used their chart to purchase (what I thought) was the right size. Well because the Capo is tall and has a big butt (panniers & top case), the cover didn't fit. So instead of sending it back, tried it on the SS...fits like a glove :smile2:

Can you just specify Ducati Supersport and get the right size?

I don’t see it on their website.
They didn't have it when I ordered mine, but that was expected because the bike was so new. With them not having it listed, it shows that they are not keeping up with their site. FIGURES. You'll need to call them, most likely, which is what I did.

Remember, buy at your own risk! They won't take your money, but you may never get it, either.

I just received my cover for the new 950 Supersport and had to provide an update on this company. Once reached, contacts at the company were EXTREMELY helpful in explaining the different types of covers and picking materials & features that were best for me- actually not trying to oversell me on the latest and $greatest$ material, even though I had already planned to go that route. The order was placed in early January with delivery promised end of January, no problems. After not hearing anything by early February, I called again and was told it should have been shipped, but they would need to followup and call me back (they never called back). In mid-February, not hearing anything, I reached out & was told that it had shipped, and they only needed to find that tracking number for me....
Fast forward a few more weeks, and after early March's call, I did receive a tracking number (dated the following day), but USPS didn't pick up the package for another week (odd thing about tracking numbers, YOU CAN TRACK THINGS!). As a happy ending, though, the cover arrived today.

So, that is all I can tell you about it (it is still in it's stuffsack, sitting on the kitchen counter. Give me a few more weeks to get the new motorcycle (hopefully Ducati's shipping estimates are better than Geza Gear's), and I'll submit a review. I've ordered the cover with darts(?) so you can either stretch it over the panniers, when I use those, or tuck that fabric out of the way when they are not on the bike, and am told it will clear the stock or the touring screen, if I add that. We'll find out. In any case, seeing how the controls & dash of my BMW faded after nearly 7 years parked in the Texas sun at work, I'm sure it will be money well spent (and eventually delivered). Expect a full review (1) once I get the new bike, and (2) after I stop riding it & looking at t long enough to try the cover!

I hear so many complaints about Geza Gear that I’m thinking about taking a standard cover and having an awning or boat canvas shop cut it into a custom bikini shape.

Here is the Geza Gear cover on my 950. As noted above, it took a bunch of calls to get it here (but they were always so friendly about it :rolleyes:), but it fits nice a snug, so I won't worry about damage from our ever present wind, and it will block the sun from damaging the controls or saddle while parked outside at work. You can't tell from here, but they added pleats at the rear so it can fit over the panniers, or stay tucked in (like now).

Speaking of the panniers, that is the box in the background. Next project...

Is that model one of the towable covers? I may spring for a couple, they look to be what I was looking for if I can tow with that one.
