I've got a truck bed tent. Toss an air mattress in there and a fan, open the sliding rear window to the cab for tunes or movie, and it's a 5 star accommodation!

I just use the regular 'ol folding camp chairs for sitting...

just saw those truck tents online... pretty cheap. good for camping at the track. I guess I should have said canopy. Guess i'll have to hit up an academy or sporting good store. Not sure if a walmart will have a sturdy one.

For a canopy, the ONLY ONE TO OWN is EZ-UP brand. Spend the extra cabbage and get the heavy duty ones.

I've had a few of the Academy and Wal-Mart brands fold up and die with minor winds, but my EZ-UP has lasted about 4 years now.

Ask any racer who's lost canopies or had them fold with the wind, the good EZ-Up is the only way to go

I can second this. The el-cheapos will fold with the slightest breeze.

Listen to them, accept no substitution for E-Z-Up. Coming from the car drag racing world and now to the bikes, ive seen countless amounts of cheap pop ups die, or even get drug into adjacent vehicles or fall over onto and **** them up.

You could buy a good E-Z-Up by the time you trash 2-4 cheapies.
