Extra large I reckon, better to have to much than not enough!

I've got a medium Stormex on mine at the moment, I'll grab a picture in the morning. Possibly a smidgen on the small side but means it doesn't flap about and scuff the paint. Extra large is for the behemoth adventure tourer things or bigass cruisers etc, it'd be a bit wizard's sleeve on an XJR (unless you've got ape hangers I suppose). Large would probably be alright 👍

I love the expression "wizards sleeve" reminds me of Borat :lol:

I think it was some local chavs who regularly steal bikes or a local biker who can’t be arsed to buy their own

I've heard it said that they nick 'em to hide nicked bikes under, which does actually make some sense.

Apparently I'm too dim to figure out how to get pictures onto here, but with the medium she is showing a tantalising glimpse of ankle so unless that's your thing Russ' recommendation of going large is probably on the money 👍 medium works for me as it's a good fit on the DRZ too, and I'm easily confused.
