I bought this because of the 100% water proof. Yes, it is HD and weighs a little more than the average covers, but I say it is worth the sacrifice so you don't have to put a tarp over your bike (which you'd have to carry extra anyway). I have not tried it on yet, because it is winter at this time and the bike is parked in a cargo trailer for the winter. Towards spring I will give it a fit. One thing I have done on covers is used 1.5 inch strapping with plastic clip in connectors to tie across the bottom. That way the weight of the plastic clip, and strap, allows you to toss across from one side (underneath) to the other so you can get a hold of the clip to plug it into the other clip part. If you want a good cover, I suggest this one.
