TENTS

MotoTent

General information

Product page (Features + Technologies):
https://www.lonerider-motorcycle.com/products/motorcycle-tent-mototent

NB: Your MotoTent comes with a large carrying bag and a floor mat already included.

More information about the MotoTent :

What is the best way to store my MotoTent™?

Always store your tent clean and dry. It is recommended that you pull your motorcycle tent out of the carry bag and lay it out for a day every 3 months when not in use. This will help prevent damage to the coated materials. In the morning, if there is some dew on the tent, lay it out in the sun for a few minutes so it dries off before packing it.

What is the best way to wash my MotoTent™?

Start by gently shaking out the dirt in your tent. Never pick up a pitched tent by the poles. Use a toothbrush or something similar and remove dirt and grit from all zippers on the body and fly. Rinse with water and allow to dry.

Why are there two extra metal tubes with my MotoTent™?

Every MotoTent™ comes with two pole repair tubes. Accidents happen while traveling in rough terrain and wind can be vicious, so we have included a metal repair tube for you to use in the event that you have a problem with your pole set. This item can be slipped over a bent or broken pole section to keep your pole system in working order until you get back to civilization

Why do I have more pegs than I need with my MotoTent™?

After the initial pitch of your tent, you may notice that you have more pegs than individual guy out and stake points. We provide you with three extra pegs in case you lose some during your motorcycle adventures. Feel free to carry fewer pegs if you want to make the MotoTent™ even lighter.

How can I make sure my MotoTent™s zippers will last?

Zippers are made of small moving parts that will wear with time and need to be maintained. We recommend cleaning your zippers' coils between trips with a toothbrush.

Where can I buy the MotoTent™?

The MotoTent™ is for sale worldwide. After ordering it online through our shop you will receive your motorcycle tent in just a few days.

How should I park my bike inside the MotoTent™ in a safe way for people inside the inner tent?

We recommend parking the bike inside the MotoTent™ inclined to the opposite side from the inner tent.

MotoTent's™ canopy has enough room to do that with ease (120cm+ width) and you will have enough space between the bike and the inner tent to move freely.
If the bike falls most damage will be done to the outer tent and outer large (Red) pole. No damage to people inside the inner tent.

! No bike falling inside the tent was reported in all the years that we sell the MotoTent™.

What if my bike catches on fire while parked inside the MotoTent™ with me inside the inner tent?

MotoTent™ has a door on the outer side of the inner tent - two zippers and you are outside of the tent.

Additional Questions

How do you install the Touratech Tool Kit to be used with our MotoBags?

Recommended preparation: Shorten 2 bolts from the MotoBag Puck set by 1cm.

Step 1:

Attach the TT tool box first, following TT instructions
Touratech Tool Kit installation on MotoBags backplateTouratech Tool Kit installation on MotoBags backplate

Step 2:

While attaching the MotoBag as per the instructions, you will notice the second screw on top, closest to the TT tool box will be too long and needs to be cut short by some 1cm (blue arrow).

(The cut shown is too short [but it works ;)], ideally, two filaments must remain after tightening the nut.)

All tightening is done with a flat ratchet key.
