Camping trips on the bike with her

I'm considering camping trips on the bike with my lady and was wondering what you guys do? How do you setup up and what to you take with? I would imagine these won't be much more then 4-5 day stints.

Bars

I did an installation for a friend just yesterday of SW's. They very well made and relatively easy to fit. Just make sure you have Torx 55. We had to run out mid installation to go buy one. Also fit...

Today I...

TT, Ohlins, Wilbers

The guys at Wilbers make a good shock as well don't they. I believe even their entry level is great. Also made to rider spec, conditions and pillion.
