I agree with others about leaving yourself an option for NOT camping. Between temperatures and rain, you might want, or need, to give yourself a break. A budget option might be a KOA Kamping Kabin...

I actually ride a C10. I'm probably pushing the car/bike comparison too far here, but I'd liken the 1sg gen Concours more to a VW Beetle than a Civic. Both the C10 and the Beetle will run forever...

Thanks Plaka,
I looked at the write-up on the phone, and it may be a bit too basic. My wife (who is not old enough for AARP junk mail yet), might be a little put off if she knew the target market...
