You could hook it up to the other side of the bike. Not likely to fall that direction.

I parked the back end of the bike behind the picnic table. A heavy rain can turn solid ground into soup. The other problem with these set ups is you can't leave the tent and use the bike. I almost bought this one:

It uses the front wheel (bicycle) as the tent frame. Very nice but you can't leave the tent up and ride into town for a meal or whatever.

When I use the motorcycle as support I use a strap from the bike and stake to the ground, tie to a tree, pole or picnic table. Not really necessary but it is "piece of mind".

For more information and pictures check here. The designer is an inmate here.

mcpenner this is pretty cool too:
http://www.bikepacking.net/reviews/s...peak-bikamper/

My tent is a "stealth camping" tent and not used for extended stay's (say, for a weekend camp out or rally) Ride until tired, put up tent (in under 5 minuets), sleep, wake up, pack up and ride on. It however can be used when using trees, poles, a fence line or picnic table as support (which is how I mostly use it) then your free to use your bike anytime. It even has a mesh "window" on top and there is a waterproof tarp that goes over the top for wet conditions.

It's really a simplistic method of shelter for easy up and down while packing to the size of a loaf of bread. But when the need arises the bike works great for tent support. For traveling, nightly accommodations, it's hard to beat.
