When you say they pack "large" are they larger then the size indicated in the literature?

My 1st attempt had me slow, maybe 12 minutes. And now much quicker in maybe 7 minutes or less, she is livable. I've never seen a simpler BIG tent setup, therefore I own one now. This has eliminated my parawing sun shade setup and smaller tent, which ALL took forever to get camp set. Randy
Specs are fine solo. Would probably create a problem when two up.

GSA is an exception to the rule, as one of the BMWs that loads really well and easy. Running heavy though is a personal choice and not always safe, so know yours and bike limits really well! A trailer is so much better for two if camping and needing to be comfy. I see two up's all the time at rallies and camping off one bike. USUALLY quite a picture and heavily loaded every time. Not a new phenom either, as decades have passed and I have been to rallies all over and the packing BMWs is always a sight to see and what folks get on board. Somebody could do a picture essay book on this alone, lol. My GSA runs right at 950/1000 lbs. when I travel far, solo and all my camp on board, full of gas. Gross for this bike is 1050 lbs. Add wife and we were over, mentioned above...Randy
