North Face Tree Frog. Listed as 2 man, would be pretty cozy for two. Packs reasonably small.

My other ride & Redverz Expedition II tent.

Image

Currently setting up the DR to be able to carry enough to take that tent.
Large rear rack and side racks ordered from moto-racks so I can strap on my 65 litre bag and maybe I'll get 2 x 35 litre saddle bags.
I'd like to take my Redverz tent, Kermit chair, inflatable mattress, sleeping bag, cooking gear & food.

Mine is on the left (Big Agnes Seedhouse 2), buddies on the right (Redverz). About as opposite as you can get. I did end up getting a wing type tarp to have a dry entry and place to stow gear.

Coleman Sundome 2 person, about 6 pounds. Just enough room for a rider and gear.

A better look here http://www.amazon.com/Coleman-2000007822-Sundome-2-Person-Tent/dp/B004J2KDH0/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1422458956&sr=8-4&keywords=coleman+sundome

I like my Eureka Mountain Pass 2XTE . Large enough vestibules on both sides. The tent alone is well ventilated and good for a rest on a hot day. The fly has proven very waterproof. Packed, this tent is only 18 inches long. Many tents have 24 inch poles. The 18 inch fits well in my luggage.

Image

Large windows for nice views when the fly is off.

Image

Without fly

Image

Large vestibules are particularly useful when storing muddy gear :cry:

Haven't camped in it yet, but we just picked this up. It sort of qualifies as a tent - the tip-out bunk has a tent over it... :lol:

Image

The trailer is 7x20, with 10' of that length being all cargo space for tying down the bikes. The front half has a full kitchen and bath.

Oh... and for camping off the bikes we use this:

Image

Not sure of the dimensions, but it is a two person tent with doors on both sides so you don't have to crawl over the other person to get out in the middle of the night, and gear vestibules on both sides as well...

I use the Kelty Grand Mesa two man. Its a great value and perhaps a little smaller than most two man tents. It has a small vestibule with end entrance. Seems to work ok and not too heavy.

I bought a Eureka tent too, Moonshadow Duo XP, was a return due to tiny hole in insect screen. For $70Au it was a steal. Sorry about the wrong bike in the pic for this site :pardon: I've got 3
If it was supposed to be a 2 man they'd have be small. My gear & me is just comfortable (I'm 6'3'' & 100kg) :good:
