I've always camped with Thermarests. They can seem kinda pricey but you can get them in different thicknesses, and they pack down pretty small. A cheap space blanket underneath it will help insulate you, too, and also crushes down small.
'96 R1100GS, the Black Beast. Most recently: 6000 miles thru US + CA. (past) 09 XCountry; 05 Tiger, sold after 32 dual sporting US states; and about a dozen on & off road Japanese bikes, all good in their own way, ridden in the US & Japan.
