I have been looking in to options for not just motorcycling but backpacking. There are not a lot of options when you consider weight. The 'motorcycle' tents the OP put up were very heavy and could not be used for hiking.

Under 3LBS but uses trekking polls. folding polls are also available.
I think I am going to give one of these a try for my next tent bit pricy but I do believe in shelters you get what you pay for.

Polless air beam tent... little heavier but no poles at all to deal with...
