Mate Stu rode his sons Suzuki 125, and Mr Bianco's Priller 125 blew up so drove his '80 mini !
Would love to see a "planking" version of this shot -- with empty liquor bottle!
Great looking ride! Guzzi is looking really nice!
So is that a 2-up setup you have there for camping? I started a thread in Pics,Pics, Pics to see some campers posting pics of their setup for 2-up riding.
It looks like the top-mount pannier softbags are a must.
Here's one of a buddy of mines, screwing around. Note the tracks leading up to the bike. It wasn't a kickstand error
Here's mine on that same trip
Sort of. I have carried that gear with 2 up, but now I usually just carry the gear for me and my wife. The pic with the soft bags is during our 3 week 10,000 mile summer trip up to Alaska and back home to Boston. My wife rides her own bike (Guzzi Griso SE) so I get to Sherpa all the gear.
Seagull Lake at the end of Groundhog Creek, Yukon.
Are my eyes playing tricks on me, or is the bike in the background on FIRE? :eek1
Camping in Ouray, CO, in my tipi with cots and a heater.... the only way to camp.
Up in the mountains about 20-ish miles east of Mount St. Helens, over Labor Day Weekend 2012.
Wow! I didn't know you could camp so close to the pyramids. Thanks.
Camping along the New York - Pennsylvania border.

Note: the bottom right photo is the old style and no longer produced, the larger left photo is the current one and the garage is larger.
As someone looking to upgrade my tent because it is too large/heavy I had looked at the garage tents. I was primarily looking at them (2 makers, I think the same actual maker just different branding) because they offer a place to work on the bike if needed during inclement weather. They can also help to hide the fact there is a bike there. Most people dont just root through others tents unless there is something shiny to grab their attention. If they are going to go through your tent anyway then it wouldnt matter where your bike is.
Going through all 35 pages of this thread I only saw a couple people with them. This prompted me to ask why.
Are they too expensive? Too bulky/heavy? Didnt know about them? Underperform in some way (if so what???) something else?
I think they're too big, heavy and expensive. I believe they're 15 lbs packed. There's no way to carry one on anything but the largest bikes, at least not if you're trying to pack light. And my PERSONAL opinion, which I know will piss off some people, is that they're the ultimate poser tent to go along with the ultimate poser bikes.
I suppose if you have the money and the space to carry it, not to mention the time to set it up and tear it down, it's a nice tent. I don't doubt it's a quality piece. But I'll stick with my REI Half Dome that I paid $100 for brand new during a sale. Sets up in about three minutes and weighs very little.
