KLR Cover to fit with Panniers

Well, I got a pair of happy trail panniers, and I'm wondering if any of you know of a cover large enough to fit over them.

LArge cover at Walmart should work.

My Kaw Barn - 2004 KLR, 2006 Concours (sold), 1997 Bayou 400.

I have this cover.

It would easily fit over a couple hard panniers. It's a nice cover too.

A bad day on the bike is better than a good day at work...
There's no such thing as enough storage space...

Any full size cover should do the trick. I fit is designed for a full-dress bike it will cover, and then some.

I have the same one as armedmissouri. It fits both the KLR and the RT.

I bought a cheap Chineese import cover off ebay. It was 10 bucks with shipping. I got what I paid for. It is translucent. It'll keep water and dust off, but I don't think it'll do much for sun fading.

Anyways, I'm about to put panniers on my bike and didn't think if my cover would still fit. I don't think it is going to. :|
