Nice. What's it called, how big and how much does it weigh?

Huge, heavy and expensive. I love it. Must have. Room to lay about on rainy days and work on the bike.

Wyoming Camp version looks like 60" head height in that vesti. That's damn near enough to be able to stand up straight, like Mom used to tell me to do. And waaaay better when you're trying to get those stretchy bike shorts on under your Rallye 3. You could set up yer Kermit or, yes, even a Pico chair (which sits up higher... my preference). And in the inclement weather, well, you could relax with a toddy and read your Kindle. Maybe they'll get one at my local REI so I can check it out. Or, I'll order one into the REI and check it out and leave it there if'n I don't like it. Cheaper than the Redverz ($449) though I think it maxes out at 77" in height but also weighs in at 13 lbs 6oz. while the BA is 9 lbs 5oz. Weight is not a huge deal on a big ADV bike, but still, 4 lbs is 4 lbs. The Redverz rates the vesti at 61 sf, the BA at 45.9. So if you need big big, get the Redverz. Not so big, the BA.

Nice!

I always thought the Red whatever it's called was just too damn big for one person to carry around. I'm going to give this one a serious look.

I like the looks of this one. I wish the specs had dimensions in addition to the square footage.

Not that it matters, but that sucker's going to be a sail in the wind. Pick your camping places carefully...windbreaks are going to be highly beneficial to the cause.

(*I do love big vestibules, but chose to go Marmot Twilight with a double vesti...works awesome for me.)

Where I live here in Europe winds seem to increase in strength and appearance. So I would rather go for a better wind resisting design than for more space if I had to choose between those. I already once experienced how a tent just blew away under my hands trying to set it up somewhere in Sweden, I could pick it up later some hundred meters further where it ended up being stuck in the bushes. Since then, I have a Nomad Touarec III tent which is a multi-geodome design able to withstand storm gales up to force 13.

Just wondering, did anyone give this tent a try?
I saw it on BA website and, while I had not thought much about the wind, really like the features.
Any feedback would be appreciated.

I bought a Wyoming SL2 sample that BA had one their website. (299.00). I have only set it in my house (we have a foot of snow on the ground now) but looks awesome. Can't wait to give it a try next spring. Only negative is that the poles are 24" long. Should not be a big deal since I don't pack my tent in my saddlebags.

In my area, Dick's Sporting Goods had a Field and Stream tent with about the same sized vestibule for $119 if I recall correctly. A buddy has one, rides an 800 BMW, and likes the tent alot. Says the rainfly is a little cumbersome to rig but overall the tent is great. Don't recall the model but bet Dick's still has them FWIW.
