If you live in America and haven't heard of this company or don't know anything about them do yourself a HUGE outdoorsman favor and dig in. I am THOROUGHLY impressed. Hiking and backpacking gear of course works perfectly as motorcycle camping gear and based on what my research has shown I've thus found one hell of a source for all of the above.
Even their lowest end tents come with high end accessories like these aluminum stakes shown below...
... as well as reflective guy lines, a stake press and GET THIS.... the tent I have linked here in this post even...
...comes with a FREE $20 tent tarp.
Hyke and Bike is basically a start up camping gear manufacturer that started making their own gear because they got tired of being screwed for the good stuff...
Honestly do yourself a favor and visit their site . They share all sorts of methods and techniques they use to keep there prices low and the quality knocked out of the park.
Aside from the fact that they deal in hiking, back packing , motorcycle camping and any other of the light and tight adventure camping persuasions -- and do so in a phenomenally intelligent and strategic way-- they are also a force to be reckoned with on humanitarian fronts
Coming up is one of their backpacking tents made right here in good ol' Oklahoma City US of A!
And GET THIS.... it's 80 bucks. $80 for a sincerely legit backpacking / motorcycle camping tent is a steal! Throw in the premium accessories / components and the free tent tub tarp (footprint) and the deal is almost too good to be true. But it is true and Hyke and Byke is making sure of it. And we just happen to think that that is pretty damn cool. lol.

If you aren't versed in tents go buy one for under a hundred bucks and compare it to this one. There will be NO comparison.
Those of you that are versed know what I mean when I say that. The weight, materials, stakes and price of this tent are off the charts of common. sewn in Oklahoma City by some dudes who are gonna give 10 bucks of their profit away to sew back into community. I love a perfect situation and this is one of those.
