    Ok, not rocket specific, but this isn't a bike forum anyway is it
    I'm considering a little tent for the rallies. I normally just have a hammock and tarp, which i love, but isn't always practical. Really like the look of these: Goose: Wingman of the Road
    Does anyone have one, seen one, or have an opinion on one?

    Looking forward to the wisdom. ..

    That looks awesome, albeit a little pricey for what it is.

    My thoughts exactly. I just wanted someone to say either, I've got one and it's well worth it, or, I've got one and they're over priced, try this ... instead.

    Sound a little complex. I wouldn't be happy buying something waterproofing that to modify it to that extent. I'm for one similar could be made much cheaper, but not if it takes several attempts. Even if I felt able, I don't want to put too much time and effort in.

    Is there anything similar out there to compare it to?

    I rather use my 2 man tent. It's cheaper, lighter, and not attached to the bike. Attached wouldn't be too bad to park and sleep, but at rallies I use the bike to get around.

    Surely the tie down tarp is easily disconnected . . .?
    Were I a camper (no more bivouac for me) I would copy the idea much less expensive.

    But you do not have to attach it to the bike. I think its more for if you run into bad weather.

    Seems in there price wise. Even comes with mattress and sleeping bag. Still been years since I slept on the ground .

    I don't sleep on the ground either. A twin air mattress is cheap and easy to cary. :thumbsup:
