    Hi Craig, yes the tents are one man bivies and are 25cm by 8cm round when folded so fit in tank bag or panniers and take up to no room at all.

    The job is going Great Stu sold my first 3 bikes with a couple in the pipe line but till they are paid for and left the shop there not sold. ;)

    One of the great bits of the job is that I get to ride all sorts of bikes, to date I've had the R1, Benelli Tre-K, KTM 640 Prestige, KTM 950 R (AMAZING!!!) Speed Triple, Aprilia Mana 850 Auto................. comming up

    Aprilia RSV4 Factory, MV Agusta F4, Rocket, Valcarie, Moto Guzzi Stelvio & Griso................... and on and on :lol:

    Heaven :D :D :D
