That is freaking sweet! You should get one! If I still had the GT I'd own one.

& you call me a troll. If I still had the GT it would be because I was riding it & there would be plenty of room for the tent on it! I don't ride the Speedy & there is no storage space on it, in MY opinion. Example: if a camper says it sleeps 4-6 I say it sleeps 2. My hot tub is a 6 person tub but I wouldn't want any more than 4 in it. Awesome motorcycle tent!

If you post every other week that you're done with motorcycling and keep on buying bikes and moto-stuff then flaunt it, I would call you something else. I'm too much of a lady to say such things however.

We don't use it much at all these days... used it all the time when we 1st got it though. I'm probably going to give it to one of my employees once it warms up enough to drain it.

I'd be afraid my bike would fall on me in my sleep.  Good tent spots don't usually make for the best parking spots.

I think SuperSlider and his wife recently bought a tent like this one.  I wonder how it works in real world situations.


The bike wont be harmed by spending the night under the stars so I'm not sure I really see the point.  It does make for a nice big vestibule if you need to get out of the rain to cook or store gear, but a lightweight tarp will do the same and much more for less.

For those genuinely interested, Redverz has a similar tent
for about 25% less $.
A buddy has a Redverz and it works really well.
The vestibule is a nice place to hang out but the best part,
if you've ever camped in the rain, is you can bring your
bike ( or trailer, if you have one. ) inside to pack and
everything stays dry. 
At the very least, it provides a place to store your riding gear.
It's never too early to plan.
It's never too late to go.

Which means he'll be buying a new hot tub soon after giving away his old one.   :bigok:

To the OP- Andrew (XSPain) has/had one of these types (not sure if it was the same maker).  Last summer he used it over here at the BBQ.  It was sweet, but he was selling it for reasons already mentioned.  Plus it packs larger than a regular tent.  He said it was great if you needed to work on your bike in the rain.   :thumbsup:

I do indeed have the Redverz and the Mototent looks like a more expensive version of the exact same thing. I wouldn't say it's the perfect tent but it is pretty darn nice. The videos make it look free standing, it isn't. You have to stake it and use the guy lines or it won't work. Depending on the terrain you may need to get creative with the stakes, which while very sturdy won't penetrate solid rock. It's a little bulky when packed and I wouldn't consider it light but these are the only real issues up to this point.

Overall it seems like a well thought out quality piece of equipment. The setup isn't complicated but I'm glad I ran through it a couple of times in the backyard first. The break in voyage was late September at Shad's landing on the Md eastern shore. Our first night was filled with heavy rain and some wind. Everything stayed put and we were totally dry. I did wake up periodically worrying where those groaning trees might fall but no problems other than that.

The next trip was a mountain bike trip at Raystown lake in Late October. The first night we set up at a less than ideal spot in the dark. I had to poke around a bit to get the stakes in the rocky ground, not great with cold hands and a rock for a hammer. It was low 40's, we were hungry and set up shop in the vestibule. I have to say that may very well be the best part of the tent. It's not as "air tight" as the sleeping compartment so I felt pretty safe firing up the stove in there. The shelter from the wind, heat from the stove and full bellies made the usefulness of the vestibule a satisfying experience.

Next day we moved to a much better spot, flat, level and in the sun. That night the temps dropped and the wind really howled. The tent shook and flapped a bit but everything stayed planted and we were relatively comfortable. I don't know how well it would withstand gale force winds as it's somewhat slab sided but I'd probably be seeking other shelter in those conditions anyway.

If your carrying capacity is at a premium I'd consider other options but if you have the space I don't think you can do much better.

It looks like the Mototent only has one door for the sleeping area. The Redvers has a rear door with a small vestibule as well. You don't have to climb over anyone when you need to make an emergency exit. I don't really care if the bike stays outside I just rode it in there to see how well it fit and for the photo op. Can you accomplish the same thing for less money? Sure, but at the end of a long day it's nice to not have to rig something up. That and Mrs. Superslider bought it.

This and this.  Thinking about how hot my bike rides and STAYS for hours after I've shut down for the day, rolling a hot engine into a nylon canopy on top of a shaky kickstand on unlevel ground means I wouldn't sleep too well in this thing.

I may be too incompetent to own one.

I picked up a used Nomad (very simlar design), primarliy to keep from having to dress laying down in teh tent, and having to crwal on my belly like a reptile to enter/exit my mobile abode . . .

the bike will likely not live inside, but it'll be nice to have a dry place to hang out in the rain . . . . .
We had two bags of grass, 75 pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

standing up is becoming increasingly important as time passes ;-}

Because time never stands still.
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
