And that air mattress will suck the heat right outta yer bones. So blankets - lotsa blankets - is a MUST. Take it from a frostbitten Michigander.

Cousin Jack hit the big one. I've seen so many people who went with the smallest tent (cheapest) tent they could get. They paid for it when they had to spend more than one night in it, there was no room, it got damp and everything got wet.

My advise is to look at it from the reverse direction, not the smallest you can strap on, but rather the biggest...... NO JOKES.

Myself, I have a large tent that has both a cabin and a netted dining area. It's a bit cumbersum, but it allows me a place to get the bike out of the rain as well without having to carry a cover for it. Also it allows me to keep to keep it secure if I'm in an area where I have reason to worry about someone messing with it.

Whatever you get, waterproof it with a good silcone spray every year, it's a quick job and a small investment to stay dry.
Do you have pictures? The wife and I tour the US and I pull a Bushtec trailer so I think the tent yor using would be no problem carrying. I like the idea about covering the bike.

When looking at the size of the tent, and you are looking at how many it will sleep, remember no human sleeps in the positions listed on the box. (Unless the are very intimate with each other)

I thought that was the point!!

If I'm camping with Nancy, I don't mind her being close...

If I'm camping with a bunch of guys, they better have their own tent!!

Well I guess I better buy a bigger tent! Melissa snores way too much for me to be intimate with her.

One of the most important points in buying a tent, for me, is getting one tall enough to stand up in. Hatehaving topullon my jeans all hunched over.

I'm sure I do somewhere, let me see what I can find. It may take awhile, I'm still unpacking and missing things from moving here last year.
