I got a Nelson Rigg cover for my D12, it is with out a doubt the best bike cover I've ever owned. Very tough, bonded seams, elastic waist, vented, and secure straps. Mine is a large, not expensive, very good value for the money.

Nelson-Rigg as well. I think mine is one of the Defender models. I keep my T595 outside on a patio, all year long. The bike sits on a HF motorcycle dolly. NR covers are very good, but those side vents only partially work. In very wet or humid weather, mold will develop on the cover inside, not the bike. A Bike Barn would be better for proper ventilation. The NR cover handled Hurricane Sandy's winds with no issues.

I don't know what's available in the UK, but I'm sure you can find a suitable cover. Obviously you want to buy a model that is waterproof, not water resistant. You want to see some sort of venting for the cover and grommets with bungees for tying the cover to itself. A soft inner layer for where the cover meets the windshield and maybe a heat shield for where it meets the exhaust can. I used to use Dow Legend covers, but they dry rotted in the sun within a yr. The NR covers will fade, but seem to deal with the UV rays better. Good luck.

Well finaly found an Oxford Rainex in Medium is a fine fit and seems well made..soft lining and heat proof lower rear ...only time will tell...
So just for the record...A Medium aize Oxford Rainex fits a T595 perfectly.
