Awesome Motorcycle Tent

I have ordered the square bar to start fabricating a sissy bar to go on my sportster for camping. Came across this tent. Gotta love it.

Would love to have one; just can't justify spending as much as those things fetch!

After a little legwork, I discovered that HD makes one that can be acquired for less than half the price:

Did you notice his custom(homemade) Luggage rack? Looks like he made it for carrying his camping stuff. I like the little Martin Backpacker guitar he is hauling around with him.

Much as I love my bike, I cant see needin to sleep with it....hell, thats room fer 2 more wimmins....lol....

I used to use my bike for a lean to....just a cheap tarp, the bike as an anchor, tarp was long enough for a floor too....

But honestly, if I had the bucks, Id own one (me, a redhead and a blonde....mebbe 2 redheads and a blonde)...and I think his custom sissy is for mounting a frame backpack maybe ?....

Really... I just bought two external frame back packs from the local outfitter, sporting good store... Walmart also carries them in their camping section.

I am not really sure why having a tent connected to your bike is such a great idea. If you are trying to go on a long distance run from point A to point B with a few stops just to sleep it may not be a problem. If you intended to stay at one place more than an overnight then packing everything up just to have access to the bike seems like some extra work for nothing. I am sure I could find something other than a sissy bar to use for a tent upright or some of the new shock corded poles pack down into very short lengths and take little room while adding minimum weight.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.
