More and more motorcyclists have taken to camping, both to reduce travel costs and to add an extremely enjoyable dimension to their adventures. Motorcycle camping offers an inexpensive, comfortable, relaxing way to see the country, enjoy nature, and share stories with your friends around a campfire. For many, camping is the ultimate motorcycling experience. With the wide choice of high quality products now available, camping by motorcycle has never been easier. But camping by motorcycle is not just a matter of buying high-technical equipment. This new edition is loaded with up-to-date, practical information such as evaluating your current bike for space and load-carrying capacity, what to look for in gear and how to use it, finding motorcycle-only campgrounds, planning and packing for your trip, dealing with "critters" at camp, learning how to cook without a microwave, and even some recipes. An extensive resource directory lists dozens of equipment suppliers to orient you in the overwhelming sea of information available today on gear, luggage, clothing, and even trailers.
