    I road to Oshkosh and setup camp up there. However, I had my trailer on me and a Hammock stand strapped to the top of that. I was going to hang on the way there but we used the air conditioned shelter house and again my stand, it was hot and muggy.

    Motorcycling and hammocking are a great match!

    Most of the threads that I've started on this site are motorcycle/hammock-camping trip reports. You can get to them through my profile if you're interested.

    There are quite a few motorcycling hangers on HammockForums. ("LawDawg to the white courtesy phone, please.")

    I sold all my tents, and my daily driver is a KLR, so it's hard to not motorcycle camp.
    One advantage I have found specific to motorcycle camping,...there is always one campsite on a slope, or with roots, and the tent people avoid these. So you can pop into spots others won't.
    Bikes and Hammocks are a food magnet, people always bring me food some nice people brought me a steak on one trip last summer, that is odd because I don't appear to be starving.

    Did a two week trip from Tx to Tenn on a motorcycle. It was great. Carried a small tent for those occasions when appropriate trees for hanging could not be found. I thought and packed like a gram weenie to get 2 weeks worth of gear on the bike (Silverado 1100). That trip is one of my most treasured memories. Only problem I was unable to solve was how to port firewood on my bike to my camp site. No gathering was allowed. Didn't want to rip up my seat or paint job attempting to haul loose wood.

    New at hammocking, but not so new with motorcycle camping.

    I have ridden from my home in Quebec to British Columbia, six times by motorcycle, five times on a V-Strom, and once on my BMW r1200s. For all trips I have used my Givi luggage, a 54 as a top bag, and I think 42s for the sides. I have always tented, using a very nice MEC Tarn, a great little tent. The problem has always been fitting the dang poles in the top box. They fit okay, but they take up a lot of room, as does the tent itself. I bought a hammock, both for motorcycle and bicycle touring. We will see. I decided to go with the Claytor, precisely because if a campsite bans them I can go to ground, but also for stealth camping if I need.

    I am really looking forward to trying out the hammock this summer, mostly because it is a whole lot more compact than a tent. We will see.

    I am headed to Boerne on my bike the first part of June to do some M/C camping and some kayak camping too. I will be there for a couple of weeks we could meet up and "hang out"

    Works great. Total package is generally less both weight and volume wise for the hammock. I have done week plus trips around the west and highly recommend it.
