All-weather cover?

Does anyone have a good suggestion for an all-weather cover that actually vents? I have one that supposedly does, but there is a large emphasis on supposedly. Looking for one that fits well (w/o paniers)

i got this Dowco 50003-02 Guardian WeatherAll Plus Black Large Motorcycle Cover and it works very well. doesn't melt on the exhaust and has a nice big vent. I'm thinking that oxford etc.. are essentially the same cover.

Yeah I looked at the Oxford Stormex and Rainex and saw mixed reviews. The cover I have is just a basic PVC Nelson-Riggs econo. Sure, it keeps the water out (from above) but then traps it in either in condensation or who knows what.

I saw the Dowco--looked pretty good. If you leave the bike under it for a day or two do you find that there's any condensation built up?

I Ride: 13 hyperstrada, montesa trials, selling Duc 900 SS CR
I got a Speedway Shelter (Motorcycle Covers, Motorcycle Shelters, Waterproof Motorcycle Cover, Speed-Way Shelters, which has a simple metal frame under the cover. Condensation is not an issue, it has good venting and nothing touches the bike - ride it in, pull it closed, 3 secs, lock with padlock, and it's out of sight, out of mind.... not a garage, but then I don't have one of those....

I've used it for 2 years and it works well - surely better than a pvc cover. I leave it under there for the whole season (when I'm not riding) and there's no issues due to condensation.
