    Yea motorbike & hammock camping are a great match. I usually put a small backpack on my back, enough to fit the tarp, hammock, gas cooker, pots & a few extras then off I go. Like kayak camping, with the hammock, it's a totally independent feeling.

    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.")

    WHAT!? I was sleeping Chris.

    You really should check out Chris' ride/hang reports, they are well worth the read. He is an inspiration to us moto reprobate hangers. I've been moto camping for years and took up the hammock last year. Loving it! We share much with the lightweight backpacking crew...smaller packing is best and light weight does not hurt. Down insulation is your friend.

    We keep this up and HF will need to add a moto hanger section!

    I have a bike and I have a hammock (or two) but I have not had the pleasure to join the two! Maybe when the weather breaks (for real… non of this Spring in January BS) some of us hangin’ bikers can plan a trip somewhere…!?!?!?

    I've been biking for a few years but just now getting into hanging with my wife. Solo it seems like a no brainer. I'm hoping to do a few 2up rides this year and hang. We pack fairly light to begin with so I don't foresee too many problems. My plan is to use the side cases for personal gear; clothing, toiletries and use the top case for the rest of the gear; hammocks, Superflies and quilts food and water. I ride a Honda ST1300 which has pretty decent storage capability.

    My wife is just getting into riding her own bike, we bought her a 07 Wee at the end of last year and she's taking her course in May. So I'm hoping we can get a few trips in on our own bikes but it will depend on her confidence at the time. But it sure would make the whole packing thing somewhat easier though but it's not a bid deal either way. I'm quite stoked about it actually

    We're going to FL for a couple of weeks in Feb, this will be our first hang. I can't tell you how bad I want to ride down instead of taking the car. If it was a solo trip, I'd do it in a heartbeat as long as the weather was decent. 2up is a different story.

    Yep, me too. The bike was the reason this whole hammock thing started for me. Looking to go light and the hammock was the natural choice. I too, only have a bike as my primary transportation and ride everyday. I am glad to see others here doing it too.

    All my gear fits in my Saddle Bags & a med size Tour Bag. Then I put a small cooler on my back seat for refreshments. I'd rather travel this way than in the car! It's such a total sense of freedom to hop on my bike and just go!

    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.
    OR can't!

    Oh Yeah, got Wolfman packs for my "mule" just for that reason.
