Your two-wheeler — it’s a cheap, fun way to travel. (I get about 60 mpg on my Suzuki Boulevard C50.) With gas prices licked, your other big expense becomes accommodations. Motels offer creature comforts, but camping is cheap. And camping offers certain charms of its own: late nights beside the campfire, quiet, clean air…. And camping for the touring biker reaches perfection when you have accommodations for both yourself and your bike.
That’s exactly what you get with Expedition Tents from Redverz Gear, a family-owned, family-run business operating out of Denver. These tents represent the perfect solution for roughing it, but in comfort.
Imagine a two-person tent that gives you a built-in garage for your bike, and you’ve got the idea behind the Expedition tent. It gives you zip-up options that let you leave the “garage” open, with separate netting for the sleeping room, or half-open as a wind-break, or everything zipped up weather-tight. When your bike’s not parked inside, you can even use the “garage” as extra living space. The tent’s designed to do all this in a compact footprint, with a low profile, and quick, easy setup: slide in 3 poles and it’s up.
