Motocamping???

Has the MH group ever did a group motocamping trip?
Have any of you done it and what'd you think of it?
Seems like it'd be a fun time...at least interesting.

I'm seriously considering getting one of those super lightweight hammock setups. It doesn't look like they would take up too much space. Seems like it would be great fun to ride to state or national parks.

When we first moved out here to northern California, we came across a bunch of moto-travelers. Hardcore biking for sure! The minimalist roughed it the most and practically lived out of a high school students backpack. We even ran across a Native Dallas oil baron, participating in a timed high stakes poker racing across the US on a HD Streetglide... pretty much had clothes stuffed in his side saddles and used his leather jacket as a pillow during the night.

I love the idea and plan on doing it soon! Reasons why I bought my BMW K1200S, is to pack all that I want for a long distances ride across the US and enjoy all the twisty roads/highways

A good amount of storage is helpful, for sure. Just look at all the space on my little guy!

Bad bikes, ya'll.
For me it would be an hour to Sam Houston National Forest and I know some good camp sites, even free ones. Some beautiful twisties above Montgomery in the forest.

Look what I found, you can even keep your baby in your tent.

i had an awesome moto camping trip back in 2016. i went with 2 friends. one on another bike and the third in his car, carrying some larger gear. i'd love to do it again sometime soon. once my superhawk gets out of the shop, i might just have to load up and find a spot. this weather is perfect.

Flip, where in California would you recommend going to? I've got some family near San Francisco, and figure some day I'll be getting out there.

I'm down for a camping trip but I gotta get my bike running first. I'm thinking just bed roll myself, Cello.
WE SHOULD DO THIS!
Sorry about your Duke, Loose.

Here's a LaneSplit camping trip.

So we live about 45 minutes north of San Francisco, close to Bodega Bay. There are TONS of awesome roads out here! TONS!!!

Your best option would be shacking up with a family member and renting a motorcycle. There are numerous roads to ride out here. So far I have ridden State Route 35 (Skyline Boulevard), Skaggs Spring Road (about an hour north from SF), Mount Hamilton Loop, and along Highway 1 (CA-1). For more options, check out www.motorcycleroads.com

If you are interested in renting a bike, check out www.eaglerider.com

I am a club member and pay $30/month... which if I don't use it, the money keeps building up as credits that I can use on future rentals, or I can transfer credits to friends/family that want to rent a bike wherever we are. They have 400+ locations to rent a motorcycle from and that's awesome for me, when I want to fly somewhere and just ride
