Motorcycles and adventure have gone hand in hand ever since the first man bolted an engine to a bicycle. In the years since, the cross country motorcycle trip has become a rite of passage for many – and some do it on an annual basis.
Of course, when you’re going to take your motorcycle across a continent you need shelter, and preferably shelter that’s going to roll up into the smallest possible package. This Motorcycle Bivouac by Exposed has been designed by a team in Switzerland to use your bike as part of the structure, it also keeps the motorcycle’s seat covered.
Each Bivouac is made from water-proof Cordura®, and it ships with aluminium poles and pegs, a carry bag and a leather brace that allows you to mount it to your handlebars or rear luggage space.
