don't you smell exhaust, oil, & gas all night?

not that it is a biproduct of the tent, but of the design concept

Thats why U have the "Star Gazer" panel-so you can see the bike coming.
Just kidding...looks like a great idea for a light pack set up,as long as the ride is tethered from the opposing side.

I was thinking the same thing! wouldn't want 600lbs falling on my head during the night. maybe have the tent on the sidestand side of the machine would be a better option. wind blowing against the tent would make it even worse.
cool idea though!

I agree, it does look like a great small tent.

It is close to the ground, and only has two "feet" so balance or a handy tree are good options.
The only real problem I had was that there is a lot of pressure concentrated on the two rather small feet, so in either very wet, or very dry soil you tend to sink in unless you can find a flat rock upon which to place the chair.

All in all very nice.

If priced well, I would definitely buy that tent. I was day dreaming of something JUST like that last summer. I can make most farkles I need, but I'll leave the sewing to the pros

there is a "small bike camping" thread on here too, take it in there. im with the "kitchen sink and armchair" brigade. got the space, got the gear, want to be comfortable, simple as that.

Ah come on don't send the troll to dump on another good thread. Just because a bike is small doesn't mean those of us that ride them don't want out comforts too.

Tx for all the positive responses to the tent.

I am working on some marketing material so I will post it in Vendor section soon.

Can we get a slow handclap going.....

Last Friday Night!

Spent then night in Kerrville Texas. It got as low as 26 degrees and I was vastly underprepared using this tent which will be great for summer and fall. I froze my arse off!

The trailer is small enough to not get in the way, and with torsion axles it tows awesome. I know it's a trailer, but I likes me some comfort and this makes it easy to bring everything I need. Ride safe.
