    Thats what got me into hanging. Backcountry quad rides. Not a M/C, but the same, limited space to haul gear. Lighter weight gear, burn less fuel = longer rides. Set up and break down of camp, easier, faster and a lot less work.

    Two pelican 1430 side cases, and a duffel bag is all I need now. Before Hammocks my thermarest took up most of the duffel bag.

    Several years ago, I moved from ultralight tents to hammocks when I kept coming across rock prepared tent pads that the campgrounds enforce. And I wanted faster grab and go so I could spend more time riding. I found that it was much more comfortable. I didn't see a vast difference in either the weight of the gear (I had pretty lightweight tent gear) or the speed of setup. At the same time, I definitely do not miss dealing with tent poles, and the take down, while not much faster is much easier on the early morning back and knees than using a tent.

    +10 on reading Land's trip reports.

    Also, advrider's hammock thread has good photos, but pretty much everyone there points to hammockforums for the in-depth knowledge you'll find here. (http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=631074).

    A while back there was a request for a moto-hang, but I don't know what happened to that.

    Happy Riding!!

    You guys need a real bike!

    I gave up my last four wheel vehicle last September and ride my K1200GT everyday. For camping, everything fits in the side and top cases. I can also strap my backpack to the pillion for those trips.

    158hp, removable cases, power windshield, heated seats and grips...an absolute dream!

    Oh! And well-groomed trails.

    I'm lookin to trade in my 2009 Roadstar Warrior 1700 for something like this, or more of a trail/touring bike....but dont be fooled that roadstar is a real bad toy

    What everyone else said...

    Here we are packed up and ready to go... my buddy has a small cruiser so I carry his tent and sleeping bag (he hasn't seen the light yet)

    My hammock, tarp, stove, etc are in one saddle bag. Tools, misc in the other and my cloths/under quilt and bag are in the red waterproof duffel.



    At camp - this year I got my Clark so I have an extra tarp which is soooo handy for extra coverage...
