All these talks about tents is cool...I've converted to a Tarp-Tent (http://www.ray-way.com/tarp-nettent/index.shtml) for a couple of reasons:

-Better ventilation during storms and less condensation inside.
-More living space. (106" long by 92" wide when pitched with a roof slope of 30º. U can see the illustraton of two full sleeping pads and loads of room for gear under the tarp.)
-Cheaper purchase price. (I made my own off the website above)
-Weighs less than two person tents that I've seen. (A two-person Ray-Way Tarp made of our 1.37 oz/yd2 silicone-nylon weighs 14.86 oz, plus 1.9 oz for the lineset, plus the seam-sealing. )
-Packs smaller. Here is pic of the two-person I just finished, Love it!



There are many manufacturers, but I decided to build my own tarp. Just throwing that out there for those looking to conserve space. I know I am because one day I'd like to do some MC campinng with a passenger where space is at a premium! :) I plan to add their Net-Tent ASAP mainly for bug protection. Wish me luck...seam sealing it in my living room now and will test it in PA on the 22nd and 23rd haha.

Best tent for motorcycle camping IMO, pricey though.

Have you guys looked at the Pinnacle pass xt by eurika yet?? That tent is amazing, 4 lbs. sleeps 2, aluminum poles. I have used it about 7 times now and it is great. I really recommend that tent. Also its pretty cheap.

Good tent

I'm all for a hooch and some bungee’s 90% of the time. Mine consist of an army poncho and some bungee cords. But when I do bust out the tent if found this one.

I'm always surprised by the overkill in what gets put on a bike. I dunno, for me it's about getting away from all the crap I’ve accumulated over the years and keeping it simple.

Sounds pretty boring to me.

I prefer overkill.

My last trip, I even brought along my remote control fart machine. It was a real hoot

Been looking around since I saw this, which specific model is it and what are the rouch dimensions? Is it lockable?

I'm not sure which Pelican case that was. That bike was totalled on my way back from Alaska. The Pelicahn case was one I had hanging around. I would suggest you decide what you want to put in it and buy one that fits.

You can lock it with a small padlock, but most folks never saw iot until I pointed it out.........

ya well, after 5 or 6 days of sitting on a regular bike seat for 8-10 hours a day, the recumbent was the obviouse choice. That is until i rediscovered motorcycles :)
