But I found it on discount, colour was no longer current I think. Very small pack-up and very good even in high winds. Great for 1, ok for 2 but not much room for owt else inside with me and my missus in there...

My tip: packsize is everything. The weight is important, but not as important as being able to stuff it anywhere it will fit Doors on either side are very convenient as you might have seen in my tent. No need to drag your possibly wet bags/cases through the tent, but just pop them in on the other side. Mine also had a little 'porch' on either side too where I stored my cases, bag and boots....no wet stuff in the tent at all
Unfortunately they don't make my tent any more, the brand went belly-up. (Khyam I believe)Ok, not belly-up...they just don't make small tents anymore
The Coleman does show headroom which I have not yet established for the Gelert, which is an advantage. I also have a Coleman family tent and like the quality.
Just rechecked tech spec on the Gelert site: The Gelert has more headroom. result

I'd love to hear a review when you've tested your new tent.
I saw a test of a few tents on TV quite recently and the cheaper ones came out quite good. For a motorbike trip you definitely need a 2-man tent, because of all the stuff you carry around (helmet, boots etc.).
On my next camping trip, I''l be using my children's tent again, which is a 2-man tent, but with 2 separate cabins & I can leave one of the cabins at home.
