    I couldn't find a thread specifically for motocamping gear. I would like to setup my little Rally for some camping trips. Maybe this thread will also help others......at the very least, maybe some cool pics :D

    My starting point

    1.jpg

    I bought some cheap Rhinowalk luggage for around $200. For how often I will use this stuff, I just couldn't justify the cost of something like Mosko/GL. I know they are much better quality.....but I won't really be putting these through the ringer :D

    Threw them on just to see

    20231216_132540.jpg


    I need to grab a tent and pretty much everything else :rofl:

    I know it's been discussed in the Moto 2.0 thread. There's just has so much info that I can't keep up :rofl:

    I know @fatfurious2 has some nice gear and my buddy @Modern.Hermit just grabbed a KLX300

    I need to grab everything. All my other camping stuff is truck based.

    Even though I don't camp I got one of these as a gift a year or so ago and love it.

    https://www.amazon.com/EXORUX-Flash...03085531&sprefix=solar+campin,aps,120&sr=8-56

    Folds down and packs up small inside a coozie to protect it, hanger to put it up inside your tent, solar or charge first from a USB. Pretty damned bight too.

    I literally just started looking into this stuff a couple days ago. I really like the Nelson Rigg hurricane backpack.
    https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/nelson-rigg-hurricane-20-backpack?sku_id=10127634

    I’ve still got all my backpacking gear from when I got to do a lot of that in grad school. So I really just need a good place to carry it. I’ve got the next couple weeks off work, so stay tuned for what I cobble together! I think I’ll be shooting for this kind of energy in 2024. :headbang:

    Family gave my a bunch of REI gift cards, so I got most of my gear from them. If it were up to me, Amazon would be my choice (mostly because Im cheap in certain things)

    This is what I used. Very bare bones, and the opposite of the luxury of a RTT/truck camping gear:
    REI Passage 2 tent
    Klymit Static V insulated sleeping pad
    a down blanket
    GSI Pinnacle Soloist II cookset
    Jetboil and associated fuel
    mountain house/related dehydrated food
    small chair
    crocs
    Amazon 25L drybag for clothes

    I dont really have a packout picture. On my last big trip VA-ME, I was using a Kriega OS-24 bag setup.
    While actually really nice, I wanted some more space. After I got home, I ordered Mosko Moto Reckless 40 v3.0 (before the price hike. I wouldnt buy them for $700+ now)

    No way. I love seeing/searching for different bikes(got to looking at VFR400's earlier :rofl:). I just figured maybe I could keep the camping stuff together in a smaller spot :D

    that looks really nice. My friend had a 1 person tent and it was literally just enough room for a body. I like a 2 person for solo camping, in case you want to store more inside the tent.

    Im hoping to do more moto camping trips in 2024. 50mpg > 15mpg in the truck

    If I'm honest with myself.....most of the time I will just throw the bike on the hitch carrier and bring it with........I just really want the option of just the bike :D
    From what I can gather, a 2-person isn't much bigger when packed down for being able to throw your stuff in if needed. I had one of those cot tents that was a 1-person and it was too tight for my liking.

    My plan for this coming season is to get a separate tent pole bag from RMATV. Along with a 25L dry duffel for my clothes. I will post when I get them and my opinions

    I’ve had a 2-person Kelty Salida 2 I think it is for like, 8 years. Never let me down and is stupid easy to set up. Bought it from REI in 2016, so idk if they still make it.
