Default Nomad Motorcycle Tent

This is a new Motorcycle tent perfect for traveling from state to state or around the world. It sleeps two with room to spare and the best part is it also houses your bike! It's like having a portable garage. Holds full sized motorcycles with panniers mounted. Keep your bike out of the elements and out of sight from theft while camping. Even tall enough to stand in. I have a ton of pics and detailed specs on my site. Type in coupon code Xventure1 at check out and recieve free shipping on all Adventure motorcycle products.

Thumbs up

Bump! for being honest and not trying the old "Hey, look what cool thing I found on another website" trick.

This tent is for those who sleep better to the smells of oil and petrol. "I love the smell of napalm in the morning!"

My pal Mark used to handcuff himself to his Harley back in the days when you could sleep on the beach in Daytona during Bike Week.

I like this idea better.

Now that's a little too kinky for me.

Haha bump on the cuffs that's a good idea! It's definitely a cool tent, packs bigger than a lightweight backpacking type tent on the back but the rewards payoff.

You know something, once you look at the pictures on the website, it looks like the over-sized vestibule would work well for winter camping.

I am not so sure that I would want to haul it around on my bike, but if there was room after everything else got strapped on, what's another 13 lbs compared to a 2 lbs bivvy sack if that's going to be your home for awhile.

It would also probably work well on canoe trips which, are really just truck camping trips anyway. A trekking canoe will gross about 1200 lbs as opposed to the 35 to 45 lbs that I put in my pack.

I would also add that if you've ever browsed through any astronomy magazines, you've probably seen something similar. So you could probably use this to cut down on light pollution at the eye piece, hang a red light in the tent, and use that motorcycle-sized vestibule for keeping the dew off a nice big Dobsonian light bucket or something bigger from JMI.



I just don't have $300 to $400 bucks burning a hole in my pocket at the moment.

Is there an optional Inflatable Bike-Lift? Or Inflatable Roll-away Toolbox?
