Hi all -
Greetings from Oregon. I purchased my first hammock a couple years ago after getting into adventure motorcycle riding. Even on my big dual sport bike space is really tight, and there is really no where to pack even the smallest packable camp chair, so I thought a hammock might fit the bill. Man was I right!
I usually do a 2500+ mile trip a year with more than half of those miles on dirt/gravel/fire roads, so a place to relax after a weary day of hard riding is a true blessing. I'm looking into a tarp for the hammock this year, and will probably just forgo bringing the tent on my next trip.
Thanks for being a great wealth of knowledge, and I love the DIY aspect of much of this site! Also a big thanks to Shug Emery for the great videos.
