Visitor's story....

Taking a camping trip into the wilderness on a motorcycle and spending your time away from the house is amazing thing to do.

At the first glance it may seem to you as hard and exhausting trip but every motorcycle rider will tell you that exploring the country on a motorcycle is a highly exciting and unforgettable experience.

However, it is not only the bike that you need for heading on such trip.

Having adequate equipment for those long rides can make your adventure much easier and more enjoyable.

Before setting out on a motorcycle camping trip, it is highly recommended to do yourself some good and do a bit of research on your next adventure especially if you are a newbie to this type of camping. Deciding where you will camp is fairly easy since a wide range of campgrounds and campsites for motorcyclists are available, but choosing the right gear for it is a little harder.

When picking out the gear for the camping, you must take into consideration the weight of the stuff you will bring. It would be wise to search for the gear that is small, lightweight and is easy to pack and transport. Moreover, you should pick the equipment that can be easily set up and put down.

... and here there is another point of view on motorcycle camping gear...

While traveling on your motorcycle, you must be sure that all your gear is packed as compact as it can be because it is the only way to make your trip safer preventing any part of your equipment to come loose. However, if you are planning longer trip, then you must consider getting a small motorcycle trailer, which is usually very light and easy to pull.

The gear that is basically the most important to have on motorcycle trips includes tent, sleeping bag, eating/cooking stuff, storage bag and emergency equipment.

Tents are essential if you want to explore nature along the roads “less traveled”. Fortunately, today’s tents are very light yet strong and at the same time offering comfortable amount of space. You must be aware that sometimes it may happen that you will have to spend few days in a tent due to weather conditions. What is good just for night may be not for day, so it is wise to get a tent that is comfortable and that can keep you dry in the worst possible conditions.

Sleeping bags should be sturdy and comfortable. Sleeping bags made of dawn are lightweight and strong at the same time and can be folded into very small package that takes up very little space.

Eating and cooking gear include a lightweight aluminum cook set and utensils and small cooking stove. As for the food, it is best for you to plan on buying food and water on daily basis because you won’t have much room to bring lot of extras.

Storage bags are items that are necessary to have no matter how you store and pack your gear. Adding these bags provide you more space for storing sleeping gear and tent and are ideal as they can be placed to the rear of the motorcycle.

Emergency equipment includes first aid kit that can save you under extreme conditions.
