My gear plus some ideas you may find of use.

Though this is my set-up for self-support kayaking, it is bascially the same kit (& accompanying techniques) I'll use once I get another bike.

The two blue dry bags are all the camping gear required for two people.




A Black Diamond tent, Big Agnes bags and pads, Jet Boil Group stove, water purifier, food, etc.

Wow thats a lot of stuff (post above mine)

For lightweight camping I go on the theary that if you dont use everything you bring with you at least once a day you probably dont need it (with the exception of 1st aid kit and tools)

I just did a 5 day trailriding camping trip living off the back of my CRF250x.

My main camping gear consisted of a Eureka Solitare tent, Kelty Lightyear sleeping bag, and Thermarest Prolite 4 sleeping pad all packed into a Sealine 30 bag and straped to a Promotobillet rack. I also straped a rainsuit to the front edge of the rack. That was about it. Lasted 5 days off that. Granted we went into town for food and gas every day.

I picked up a Hennessy Hammock after that trip. Next time I will leave the thermarest at home and just bring the hammock and sleeping bag. Simple and light.

Whew!! I don't have all that stuff at home. You must live pretty good on the road!

You do need one of those big, fluffy bathrobes you can steal from a Hyatt or Hilton hotel, though.

I know its funny, I could not resist. Typically this is not my list, I prepare for a hike through camping jorney> I have not motorcycle camped before, but have camped many times, via vehicle, and backpack. I really, really am looking forward to do it this year on my new strom. I purchased allot of new and used gear a couple of years ago. I use www.campmor.com allot, and ebay. Anyway, this site has an editable motorcycle camping list that is windows compliant you may find very usefull. Its also the place I found for the longest camping list shown above.

Keeee-Ripes!

My typical gear is an Ultralight. Believe it's made by Rockwood. This is last year at CroMag.

The hardboxes seem to get filled with tools, bike cover, clothes, computer, 1st aid, rain and cold weather gear, and other stuff we take if we are not camping.

Thumb Alcohol Stove..

I have been resisting building one of these for years...many PCT hikers use them and swear by them...my MSR Whisperlite Int [burns car/bike gasoline and damn near anything else] has always been all I needed backpacking or kayaking until a new pump failed in Norway on our honeymoon trip way in the back of no-where [no wood "up top" in Norway and besides they have a complete ban on open camp fires in Summer]; no pump, no stove-fire, cold stick and twigs for food, ugh!..SOOOOOO, I guess my time has come to give an alcohol stove a try...old dog, new trick?

Thanks for website Scott..

I had an MSR Whisperlite (not the int.) and I've had far better results with the pop can stove. The only down sides are lighting (you need a starter paste to get enough heat for the stove to generate) and there is no control for the flame although the simmering rings work fine. Mine seems to have alot cleaner set of flames than the one pictured, more whisperlite like. I think the holes I drilled ended up a bit smaller than the one picture.
