Motorcycle tents

Recommended Posts

Nice idea, but demoing with a dirt bike pretty much shows it won’t work well with full sized motorcycles.

Looks like a great tent. Lots of features and apparently well thought out. At 100" wide in the garage, it should be big enough for anything you'd care to tour on. I like the idea of a large vestibule for hanging out when it's wet. At 14 lbs it's pretty heavy, but that is apparently the price of "features".

 

When my brother and I packed horses through Montana and Wyoming for a summer, we used tarps effectively for dry shelter when required and each had a 2 man dome tent for sleeping. I always figured a similar setup would work for motorcycle touring. But we weren't as weight limited as you would be on a bike since we ponied three pack horses in addition to our riders.

I’ve seen it in action by other bikers many times on long tours that I’ve taken.  Works very well.

Nope...marketing.

 

Demoing with a dirt bike leaves one to wonder what size bike will work with it (and I don’t mean barely fit in).  Now, had they used more of an adventure bike, it would do more to sell the product.

Water beading on the exterior is nice, sheeting off would be much better.
