How to Go Motorcycle Camping

How to Go Motorcycle Camping

[music playing] Howdy. This is Lemmy with RevZilla. And I’m Spurge, here
with the newest episode of RevZilla’s “Redline.” That’s right. The camping episode. Now, Spurge and I are gearing
up to take a weekend trip. In fact, that’s the
type of trip that we take most often,
whether we’re together or we’re apart from each other. And the reason for
that is pretty simple. A weekend trip doesn’t really
involve much investment in either time or money. Just about any rider on
any bike, on any budget, can get away for
a quick weekend. Now, before we get too deep in
the video, one quick caveat. We can’t show you how
to camp in 20 minutes. That’s just not possible. So we’re going to assume
you have some basic camping knowledge, and we’re going
to help you augment that with some
moto-specific tips that make living off of a motorcycle
just a little bit easier. Because, I mean, the thing is
camping is pretty much the same once you get to the campsite. It’s how you get
there that makes it a different experience. When you’re in a car, man,
you can throw pretty much anything in the trunk– the
cooler, the kitchen sink– and just go. But when you’re on
a motorcycle, you have to be much more
cognizant about what you’re taking with you. And this actually
has more in common with something like a
backpacking style of camping. Because it’s really all
about the size and the weight of what you’re taking, and how
you’re packing it on the bike. Now, if you look at the
two bikes we have here, these are pretty
different motorcycles. I’ve got a very
large ADV bike, and Spurge is kicking around on a
little, teeny tiny dual sport there. But it does pay to remember
that, in their stock form, neither of these
bikes was particularly well-suited to take
in a long trip. But with some quick additions
that can pick and choose from, these things are a little
bit more comfortable for life on the road. For Lem’s Africa twin, he went
with hard luggage down low, and then he added the
mounting plate up top, so he could lash down
some dry bags to it. For my bike, I took a
completely different approach. I went with soft bags because
it was easier to get that on this particular motorcycle. But remember, regardless
of which method you’re going to go with,
there’s some pros and some cons with each of these. For example, if you’re taking
a look at these hard bags that Lem has on here, these
are awesome in the fact that they’re secure,
he can lock them on there, in most
cases, waterproof, and there’s dual functionality. When we get to the campsite,
he can pull those off. He can use them as a camp
seat around the fire, or even a table when we’re
preparing dinner. Now, there are some
negatives here, as well. These are going to be expensive,
and I think their cost is going to be prohibitive
for a lot of folks, especially because you
need specific mounting hardware to get it on the bike. You’re also going to
add a lot of width, as well as a lot of
weight to these bikes. Now, for me, I went
with soft luggage. And the beauty
about soft luggage is it’s going to be
rather inexpensive. It doesn’t add a
lot of extra weight. And I can simply throw it over. I don’t see any specific
mounting hardware to get this onto my motorcycle. The downside is I
have no security. Anybody can walk up and cut this
with a knife and take my stuff. And in a lot of cases, I’m
going to need to actually add extra waterproof
covers to this to make sure my gear doesn’t get wet. And as far as that dual
functionality goes, I’m going to have to
rely on old Lem-Lem here to be nice enough to let
me sit on one of his boxes when we’re around the campfire. Now, Spurge has
covered, I think, the thing that everybody thinks
of first when they’re talking luggage, and that’s panniers. However, there’s
lots of other ways to put stuff onto a motorcycle,
and especially if you’re riding a bike that’s
not traditionally a touring style motorcycle. There are some
other areas you can use in order to maximize the
packability on your motorcycle. Now, Spurge has done just that. If you look over
at his bike, you’ll notice he utilized
a spot that I think is absolutely critical
on bikes that don’t have lots of packing
space, and that’s the area on the fuel tank. He threw a tank
bag onto this bike. It gives him a little bit
of additional packing room, and it’s especially
good for stuff that you want to keep
close at hand when you’re actually out there on the road. Check out, too, another
area he didn’t use, but is still a great spot to pack– the handlebars. Handlebars can be
an awesome place to pack things if you don’t
have a fairing in front of them. You can actually put a longer
piece on them and lash down. I’m thinking,
specifically, of tents. There have been plenty of trips
I’ve taken where I’ve thrown my tent onto the handlebars. There’s a lot of different
ways, though, that you can get stuff onto your bike. Just remember, if you’re using
any of those lashing methods, you want to put your items
inside of something waterproof because they’re going to
be out in the elements. And once you figure
out what luggage you’re going to
use to carry items with you on your
motorcycle, the time has come for you to pack it up. And Lem has made a
great point earlier about weight distribution. You don’t want a bike
that’s packed too top-heavy. So any heavier items
you have– like maybe a cooking stove, or
some extra canned food, or even some tools– you want to go lower
in the luggage. Keep that extra weight down low. The other thing to
consider is you don’t want all the weight on one side. So make sure you’re
evenly distributing the weight from side to side. And that way, when you’re
rolling down the highway, the bike maintains its
handling characteristics. Now, once you’re done
packing up your motorcycle, step back for a second and
start thinking about safety. Take a walk around
it to familiarize yourself with exactly how big
that motorcycle has grown. While you’re taking
that walk around, I want you to check something,
too, that a lot of riders miss, and it’s a really big
safety consideration. And that’s your lighting. All too often, I see people
lash things to the bike, and they obscure their lighting. You need your
taillight, brake light, and turn signals visible. It’s going to keep you safe. It’s also going to keep other
motorists on the road safe. Make sure you don’t
obscure your lighting. Now, another thing,
too, that should be top-of-mind for
you is the cargo carrying capacity of your bike. Now, if you’re a larger
guy, like Spurgeon or me, or definitely like
Spurgeon, it can be really easy to overload a motorcycle. So pay careful
attention to this. Some bikes have very small
cargo carrying capacities. Yes, I’m on a
smaller bike, and I do have it packed to
the nine, which actually brings us to our final tip. And that tip is that maybe the
best place to pack something on your bike isn’t on your
bike at all, but rather a buddy’s motorcycle. So if you’re traveling with
a few different riders, maybe they could help
you out with a few items that you want to take with you. Now, you don’t want
to be that rider, asking everybody to carry
a little bit of your stuff. However, if you have a good
relationship with somebody, and you know they have
an empty saddlebag, it can always help to try
and claim some of that room for your own. All that being said, you ready
to rock and roll, big boy? I thought you would never ask. Let’s get the hell out of here. [music playing] Howdy, Spurgy, how’s
it handling for you? So, it’s handling about
as good as I would expect this bike to handle. [laughter] But the luggage
just really seems to be kind of holding the back
end down a little bit more. Softer spring in the rear. It wanders a little bit. But for the most part,
it’s doing just great. I’m used to riding a
small bike long distances, and this thing’s
been pretty adequate. And I did check the load
rating on this thing. It’s rated for about
350 pounds, and I really can’t imagine
that myself plus my gear is over 350 pounds. Oh, you really can’t
imagine that, huh? I’m not that fat. [laughter] Well, I’m kind of in
the same exact scenario. I mean, this thing’s
obviously wider. It’s heavier. But I’m actually kind of used
to this method of riding. I’m usually loaded with all
the same amount of gear. Plus, I usually have
Mrs. Lem on the back. But I’m on a much
heavier bike, so that additional gear
represents a smaller portion of the total package weight. It’s probably a little bit
more noticeable on your ride. Well, absolutely. I mean, you’re also on a bigger
bike, which is a little bit more stable on the highways. So you’re not getting the
[bleep] kicked out of you the way I am, which
makes me wonder how much further we have to go. We’ve only gone
about 200 miles in. Where is this campsite that
you’ve picked out for us? Oh, it’s just up the road
just a little bit here. [music playing] Now, viewers, this is
something you might actually want to pay attention
to, especially if you’re new to camping. You want to have
your campsite locked down beforehand
unless you’re a really experienced stealth camper. And the reason I say this is,
in the nice months, campsites tend to fill up really
fast, especially around holiday weekends. And it’s a lot
easier to find out that your preferred campsite
is full from your office chair on a Monday morning than
it is when you’re actually at the gate, and it’s
locked, and you find out that they have no more room. Yeah, yeah, yeah. A few more miles down the
road doesn’t tell me how far. I need gas. So I need to know
how much farther we’re going down the road. So that’s a bit of a role
reversal, too, I guess. Because I’ve got the
Barcalounger here. I have nearly three times the
tank capacity that you do. Usually it’s me on some
chopper with a ridiculous tank, begging you for fuel. Well, it’s interesting. Because I mean, you
and I have taken so many trips together
that we know how the other person likes to ride. And that’s something that
you should all be aware of. When you’re going out
motocamping for the first time, if you’re going with
some folks you’ve never ridden with before, have
that discussion ahead of time. Know when the other people
in your group like to stop. You want to go 50 miles in
between stops, or 150 miles. Otherwise, you
might end up getting pretty irritated
out on the road, kind of like I am right now. I need gas, and I’m
actually really hungry. We haven’t stopped all day. [laughter] Of course you’re really hungry. Hey, Spurge, enjoy the ride. Oh, god. [music playing] Dude, where the hell are we now? I thought we were getting gas. Oh, we’re in
Pennsylvania, Spurge. Yeah, I know we’re
in Pennsylvania. Why will you not tell
me where we’re going? [laughter] You’re going to like it. I’m telling you, dude, you
can’t judge a book by its cover. Come on. Check this out. Tell me this ain’t great. It’s pretty cool. There’s a lot of
cool bikes here, man. Hey, Spurgy, check
this thing out. This is cool. You ever see one of these? It’s a Harley
Davidson dirt bike. Look at that thing. Not just the Harleys. You got Beemers.
You got some Guzzis. I was going to say,
check this chopper out. Man. That things is sweet, baby. Knucklehead, Knucklehead. And they got two Flatheads. What’s the difference? This one is bigger. I can tell because
there’s a sign, and it says 80 cubic inch. Dude, check this out. Harley Davidson-made
snowmobiles. Yeah. They made fishing boats, too. That’s so cool. This place is huge. You can get lost. But we got to boogie,
so let’s hurry up and check out the rest of it. And this is the coolest
thing in this museum. Yeah, until Pop-pop
falls and he impales himself on those spikes. [laughter] Do you know what this is? [cranking sound] It’s a twingle, also
known as a split single. Oh, there’s like a
whole village over here. Mm-hmm. You got the fishing store. You got a barber shop. There’s also a whole bunch
of motorcycles, too, buddy. So much more than
just an old bike barn. [music playing] Let’s go. All right. Let’s go fill your tank
and fill your belly. You still have not told me
where we’re camping yet. At the campground. [sighs] [music playing] I actually want to thank
you for serenading me, in the last two hours
on the way up here, with country songs
and show tunes. Oh, you know far more
show tunes than I do. (SINGING) Oklahoma,
where the winds go dancing down the plains. I win. Race over. Don’t you need a rain fly? Oh, I have almost one. Got it. I think I may have
made a mistake. What did you do? What’s going wrong
with this tent? Dude, I have this cool little
thing to hold a screen. I can put a tablet in here
and watch TV at night. You’re camping. Well, I don’t have
a tablet, either. So– Oh, I see what I did. Now, when I roll
into camp, I really have two things top-of-mind. The first is going to
be setting up the tent. Now, for most
motocampers, that’s the most technical
task you’re actually going to have to accomplish. It’s a little bit
easier when you’re doing it during daylight. However, if you’re rolling to
camp late, and it’s dark out, don’t forget, your motorcycle
has a headlight on it. Simply illuminate the area
you want to set your tent up in, and then kill
your headlight when you’re done getting set up so
you don’t bother other campers. The second thing
I like to do, too, is also slip into something a
little bit more comfortable. Note that I’m wearing a
set of flip-flops here. I like my feet to start drying
out, as well as my boots. Now, for those of you who are
doing any type of mileage, you’re probably
going to be in a set of touring-specific boots, which
are almost always waterproof. Those can kind of hold
your perspiration in. So by switching
out to flip-flops, your feet get a chance to dry
out, and so do your boots. Ole soggy feet over here is
absolutely correct about all of those things. But one of those considerations
we want to talk a little more about is selecting your tent. Because it’s important to
select a tent that’s going be nice and compact. Remember we talked about
earlier, with that car, you have all that room? Well, on a motorcycle,
a tent, a sleeping bag– those larger items–
are going to take up valuable real estate. Now, luckily for
us, modern tents pack up smaller than ever. And for this event,
Lem and I actually brought a two-person tent. And that’s because, when
you’re selecting the size tent you want, a good rule of thumb
is to bump up one person’s size more than you actually need. So for this trip, a two-person
tent worked perfectly for us. It fits ourself, as well
as any gear that we want to stow out of the elements. If you’re camping with two
people, good rule of thumb there is to bump up to
a three-person option. Now, I like to think
I’m a little bit more open-minded than my freakishly
tall colleague here. I’m not quite so slavish
the idea of a tent. There’s plenty of other options. You know, you can do
that whole tarp lean-to thing or, of course,
you can always do one of my favorite setups,
which is simply the bivy. A bivy is sort of like
a waterproof sleeping bag for your sleeping bag. You can just tuck your
fart sack right in there, and they pack down
exceedingly small. The downside to these, though,
is that they’re not always very comfortable in wet weather. So using one can be
a bit of a gamble. Now, speaking of your fart
sack, you should probably know that, much like
tents, these things are rated really strangely. The temperature on
the sleeping bag itself isn’t really the “you’ll
be comfortable” temperature. That’s the “you probably
won’t die” temperature. If you actually want to be
comfortable in your bag, you want to select
one that’s probably going to be about 20 degrees
colder than the area you plan on camping in. Now, another way to maintain
warmth in your camping is to add a layer
between yourself and the cold, heat-sucking earth. And that layer is going to be
some type of a sleeping pad. Now, for me personally,
I like to go with a self-inflating air pad. And the reason I
like to do this is it packs down nice and tight. When you get to where you’re
going, you can unroll it. You open up the
nozzle at the end. It inflates itself. Sometimes it does
need a little help. But for the most part,
this is a really easy way to maintain a layer
between you and the ground. And the side benefit
here is it adds comfort. The ground is hard. There’s rocks down there. So this is going to give
you a better night’s sleep. And again, that self-inflating
pad– because it packs down so small– works great regardless of what
size motorcycle you’re on. Not all of us are on
giant adventure barges. And not all of us on giant
adventure barges are soft men. I don’t use a sleeping pad. However, I would say,
especially if you’re on a small motorcycle, if you’re
looking at a sleeping pad, skip the inflatable one and,
instead, look for a foam one. And the reason I say that is
those things can be cut down. You can instantly trim
about 1/3 of the length off of one of those. The reason I suggest doing
that is that your body doesn’t really necessarily need
an entire full-length sleeping pad. You really only need
from about your shoulder to mid-thigh covered for both
comfort, as well as warmth. Your legs really
just don’t care. Now, my final piece
of camping advice is for the good times crew. Toss one of these
in your tent as soon as you’re done putting it up. Morning you will thank you. Well, I know I’m
hungry, so I can only imagine that you’re starving. What’s say we go
eat some dinner? [music playing] When it comes to
grubbing down, you’ve got a couple of different options. The easy one is simply eat out. Grab some grub before
you roll into camp. That’s especially
good for those of you on small bikes, who don’t
have a lot of packing room. Of course, one of the easy
options you’ve got, as well, is to order in. It’s kind of surprising how
many pizza places will deliver latenight pies to a campground. Now, those only
work, unfortunately, if you’re in a civilized area. If you’re heading
for the backcountry, you’re going to have to cook for
yourself and pack some food in. Those first two options
can get rather pricey, too. And remember, one of the
reasons we’re going motocamping is to save some coin. So when you’re thinking
about bring food with you, plan on any
non-perishable items. It’s cured meats,
nuts, or just some cans of chili, or maybe some stew. This makes a really easy meal. Now, I used to just pop this
open, stick it in the fire, and eat it warm
right out of the can. But one of our
“Common Tread” readers let me know that these cans
are now lined with plastic, so that’s no longer
an option for me. What I do is I just bring a
little pot with me that folds down, put the chili
right in here, and cook it over the open fire. Easy meal in a can. If you’re not as
fancy as this guy, there’s no rule that
says you can’t just eat it cold out of the can. He’s an animal. Cowboy style, buddy. [laughter] [music playing] Lem-Lem, coffee. What’s going on, sunshine? Not too much. How did you sleep? Nice. On my back. Yes. [music playing] So our weekend motorcycle
getaway is coming to an end, and it’s important to remember,
as you begin to break camp, to take the time to repack the
gear as good, if not better, than when you did it originally. You don’t have the room of a
car to just throw everything in there, so you
really need to be diligent about how you’re
repacking everything before you move
on down the road. I agree completely. One of the things
I try and do is keep my dry and
clean items separate from dirty and wet items. This is especially
important if you’re going to be camping for multiple
days out of the same gear. A wet sleeping bag’s
really not that much fun. Now, one of the ways I sort
of make this happen, too, is sometimes I’ll
lollygag around camp, wait for the sun to come
out, and let it drive off some of the dew and
moisture that can accumulate on your tent and your gear. Now, if you don’t
have the time to do that, another tip that
I’ve used along the way is to take my towel and
just wipe down the tent, wipe down your drop cloth
before packing it up. And then you can take that wet
towel, and any other wet items you might have,
and just strap it down to the top of your pack. Those items will
naturally dry as you’re rolling down the road. Now, one thing we’re both
going to do when we head home is unpack. It can be super tempting,
after a long, hard ride, to leave your bike packed in
the garage or the driveway. Don’t do it. All of that dirt and moisture
tends to eat up gear. I know plenty of people
who have had to 86 a tent after it got all mildewy,
sitting for a couple of days. But like I said, our trip has
pretty much come to an end. We’ve done everything except
for clean up the campsite. The final thing you want
to always make sure you do is to leave the campsite
as clean as you found it. And I believe we’ve
got some empty beer cans that we need to pick up. As clean as you
found it, or better? Oh, damn it. Exactly. That’s about it for us. If you have any questions about
anything you’ve seen here, make sure you drop us a comment. Also, subscribe to us so you

100 thoughts on “How to Go Motorcycle Camping

  1. Probably my most favorite Redline episode to date so far!! I love my Moto camping Adventures on my versys but one thing always still eludes me. Whenever I pack my adult beverages in the beginning of the trip they always get well….rather warm. Any products or tried-and-true advice you wish to give this young buck? ?

  2. Oh man I love moto camping, Hilleberg sell some amazing tents esp if you're camping in places like south africa on a 10k mile tour :), mine never let me down in 20 years of use.

  3. Btw a thick microfiber towel is perfect for drying your tent off from due, you can then just ring it out and tie it to your grab rail and let it dry in the wind 😉

  4. You skipped the most important part: how do you pack the bear and how do you keep it cold?

  5. I'm hoping to do a camping trip for a weekend in June. Google map shows a ride of 350 miles. However this involves interstates and just blah riding. What are some tips, apps or recommendations to plan a bike ride that gets you to the camp side without really speeding down a highway? I know more miles will probably be tacked onto the route, but I enjoy the scenic route! Thank you for your help!

  6. to be honest, this wasnt quite the kind of camping i was hoping for, being from northern canada i was more hoping like, bring a small axe atleast a knife and at minimum a ration, how to start a fire. actual in the woods stuff instead of bringing a fire pit. although i have to say it is a good video for any city boys who know nothing about the wilderness unlike myself who lives in it

  7. Mountain House meals. All you need is water, something to boil it in and a fire or jetboil type system. You'll probably bring water anyway and the mountain House meals are light and very packable.

  8. How true on tent size, 4 people in a 4 person tent is cramped. No room to store gear and embarrassing when you wake up your friends while sexing the girlfriend.. We should have taken separate tents. But Dam it was fun…………

  9. Or a Multi-Star Motel for a mattress and hot shower… for those who quit camping when getting up in the morning became the 1st chore of the day!

  10. No mention of backpacks? My ICON fieldpack holds a lot, is secure and rests on the pillion so not much weight on my shoulders.

  11. No mention of adjusting the rear preload to keep the geometry correct. That is why the 250 wanders. Not good.

  12. Don't forget a power bank and cable for your phone/satnav/intercomm.

    Also what chairs would you suggest if no hard pannier option.

  13. Awesome video guys. I've been thinking about doing a trip to Yosemite from Texas. Definitely not a weekend trip but info nevertheless. Content is awesome and the chemistry between you two keeps the video interesting. Please do more of these videos.

  14. Hello guys!
    Thanks for the tips, they were awesome.
    Guys, I had a glimpse of a GPS / cellphone suport attached on your bike handle bar. Could you tell me what is that suport please? I would like to buy one like that .
    Regards and good ride.

  15. Bring…
    Sterno Stove Kit with extra sterno canisters. Or Coghlans Folding Stove with fuel canisters (sterno or coghlans)
    Cs EspasaXL folding knife. Protection & stuff.

  16. I prefer using a hammock when I camp. 1) I think it is more comfortable since you never have to worry about hard ground and 2) without and hard poles, they can fold up incredibly small and into any shape which works well with limited cargo space

  17. MotoCamping IN THE WOODS.
    Saved about $20 on a camp site.

    Hammock sleeping.
    Suspend & sleep.
    Bug cover, rain cover & buttocks warmer level.
    All crush down nicely.

    Really crappy weather?…Hostel.
    The $30 You spend is the $10+2hours you save on laundromat dryer fees.
    Plus, they have kitchens so you can heat & eat or create a SCRATCH meal

  18. don't need a tent, don't need a campground, don't need half of that stuff…  I need a bedroll, TP,  a pint of rum and a special cigarette

  19. I was hoping for at least one new insight here, but alas, everything was very obvious. This vid is very basic and might be helpful to the never-gone-camping-on-a-motorcycle-before crowd, but even that is pushing it. As far as the "motorcycle campground" goes, give me a break! You guys had the only motorcycles on the property that I saw, and the lot looked like the parking lot of a friggin' RV dealership. That's a hard "NO" for me, gents.

  20. Good advise!! i find every time ive gone over the years its been less and less things carried. less things = less weight. lighter bike. more enjoyable ride!

  21. That Harley dirt bike isn't really a Harley as it has a rotax engine, I think Harley made the frame, we used them in the British army known as MT500 .

  22. this was a good one 🙂 really like the way you are talking about all the options! alot of great tips for people who want to go camping 🙂

  23. I love this episode.
    I traded in the Harley and got the Africa Twin.
    This video was greatly encouraging in that.

    @ZLA Lemmy ., what tires do you run?
    Did you upgrade the handguards?
    You are running hard cases (Givi) side cases and a soft top. I have been told to do it the other way around to not break ankles.

  24. Call ahead, make a motel reservation and just enjoy the ride. I am 71 and have to get up and pee four or five times each night. I am not about to get up, put shoes on, walk out in the bushes, or try to pee in a coke bottle.

  25. Maybe more for packing the bike than for camping but: Pack your top luggage on your buddy seat if you dont have a passenger. Noticed you put the pack on the mounting plate whereas you could slide it onto your buddy seat and strap it there. Its better for weight distribution.

  26. What about transitioning from bicycle touring (I have all the camping gear and pannier bags) to Motorcyle Touring; Do you have any recommendations in a Touring Motorcycle that is under $8,000.00 and will be able to carry a total load of about 300lbs. (this includes my dog and cargo weight) to travel areas of the United States.

  27. FINALLY!!! I ALWAYS eat food straight from the can every calls me a freak.. #coldspaghetti fellow cold food eaters unite

  28. The boat at 8:46 is from the battle boat ride from indiana beach or one of the few ithers they made…. i almost bought one… anyway nice video

  29. Is it just me or did they secretly hate each other this weekend MAJOR shade thrown but super subtle body language tells it a bit

  30. I'm only 13 but if been watching so many of your videos now I feel a lot better about getting a motorcycle and having fun

  31. Hey guys, great channel. Regarding cans lined with plastic, as long as the contents is water based liquid, as opposed to oil-based, you're good to go with heating on a flame; the liquid prevents the plastic reaching melting point. You can literally put a plastic water bottle above a flame, and it won't melt.

  32. when i need some extra space i aways find a buddy who has an empty sadle bag and offer to "help him" by putiing my stuff in it to help balance the bike

  33. So awesome… Bill's old bike barn is like 5 minutes from where I grew up. Love that you guys are doing new things in the motoblogging realm.

  34. Every try pulling a trailer behind you I did best thing I every did for for riding short and long trips used a 2007 HD super glide about 275 lbs laod still have trailer bike was wiped out by hit and run so ride and enjoy the ride and be safewind

  35. Just an addition to the Tarp part. A 2×3m Tarp as Roof with a Hammock and a Blancket, doesnt need much Space and is cheap

  36. for overnight trips, i often pack MREs since they have a flameless heater and dont take up as much space as canned food and a portable stove. Its not as good as food cooked over a campfire, but its another option for light travelers.

  37. I took a long ride up to Bill's Old Bike Barn yesterday. What a fantastic and varied collection! I thought I'd be there only a half hour or so? 3 hrs later, I had to admit to myself there was still too much to see, and I'll be going back annually. Great content you guys!

  38. If I tell you I’m hungry and you respond with… ‘hhahaha oh just enjoy the ride’….?
    Let’s just say post editing is gonna be busy!!! ????

  39. I am at a loss to explain how you would consider the bag over the boxes because of weight..?? The Givi side case is less than 6 lbs.. It's also easy to clean, secure and acts as a chair, or place to put your stuff.. Yes, the side cases make your bike wider, but to a seasoned driver it's just more fun and they look far more pro than a bag on the back of your bike..
