No, of course not. But that IS what smart people do.


By the way that is a pretty sleazy looking website.

Its main page looks like an advertisement for a brothel.

My bike sleeps inside as I do every night.
When we go out camping together, we are both enjoying the outdoors and I wouldn't want to take that away from her by making her sleep in a garage. She likes to look at the stars and sometimes take an overnight shower to wash away the grime of the day.

If you really loved your bike, you wouldn't lock it up like that at night.

Working link...

...The link works.

I checked it before I posted.

I could say something snarky here, but I think your "situation" is already obvious.

Cheers.

Oh, by the way, I wasn't endorsing the tent, just sharing what appeared to be a new product with the collective. Isn't that one thing forums are for?

Out.

This tent was shown here a while ago. Turned out it was a copy of the Redverz design, just slightly different dimensions (smaller). Yet the tent is bulkier and heavier than the Expedition II.

I remember they were sued by the Redverz and lost. The original french website disappeared. IIRC they were not allowed to sell in the US....

Cheers,

I think I remember something about that. The selling dealer is in SC, nice shop too

Check out the Google Street view: http://goo.gl/maps/e1p7Z Must be an old google image, not putting the fellow riders down when they start a new business I just though the picture was funny.

If I wanted my bike to fall on top of me while sleeping, there are cheaper ways to guarantee that ...

I bought one of these at the BMW rally in Garmisch last year. Have used it once so far. Seems like a nice bit of kit. Bedroom area seems to have more headroom than the Redverse tent. I paid 350 GBP - a show special price.

Redverz

I bought my series II direct form Redverz and they were first class. Shipped it to me over night on their dime so i could meet my riding schedule and the tent is amazing. If you are looking for a tent like this I would suggest going with them.
