    Thanks, but the funny thing is the only thing I have left from that setup is the top quilt, bear vault, poles and the tarp lines.

    I've got this down pretty good - I have to shuffle some gear around but it worked well this summer:

    1) Hammock gear goes in saddlebag
    2) Clothes go in dry bag on seat

    When I get to camp I setup hammock, move clothes from dry bag to saddlebag - then I stuff my suit and helmet into the dry bag for overnight. If it's raining I'll just hang my suit under the tarp, and dry off my helmet and stuff it in the dry bag alone.

    And this summer I also brought two tarps which is a huge convenience if it's raining - no more huddling under the hammock tarp!

    Hammock, kitchen items, and clothes in one saddlebag, sleeping bag in the other (replaces with helmet when I reach camp), and various riding and camping paraphernalia in the top case.

    If I'm backpacking, the pack gets strapped to the pillion with everything in it and I pack all my riding gear in the cases while I'm gone.

    I carry tools for tire repair and minor mechanical repairs when on my bike, but usually take a point and shoot camera instead of my DSLR (due to the nature of off road riding in general). I tend to be just as weight conscious as I am when hiking otherwise. When car camping it's me, my family, my dogs, and way too much stuff.

    Basically the only difference would be personal preferences for sleeping bag/pad/quilt(s).

    I usually multi-purpose cordage for tie downs and I bring a spare tarp, not for the bike but for my riding gear. And in a pinch I've used my helmet for a seat.

    Since I took up hammocking last fall this will be my first year motorcycling (Triumph Tiger1050) AND hammocking. Can't wait! Already have 3 big trips planned.

    Like many I have sold all my ultralite solo tents and will just have to be prepared to go to the ground If needed (very unlikely) .

    Hammocking is one of my new loves so combining it w/my other...is just TOO much!!!

    I do think I will take my larger, cheaper, camo tarp from harborfreight instead of my silnylon. More rugged and i ain't backpacking. Plus I did that ATVing/hammocking this winter and it worked out well.

    I want you guys to know that this thread almost cost me $8,000! I currently have a cruiser but have always wanted a BMW GS series. After re-reading this thread, I found a used GS1150 Adventure with everything I wanted in Texas. I called but it had sold that day. Good and bad news I guess.

    There's a Black Hills Hang this August 17-19 I believe. I'll be riding there on either a KLR or DL650. Maybe more will be there too? Staying away from Sturgis tho, if that's happening near then in time and space.

    This weekend

    I needed a break from the mediocre snow we've been having this year, so I headed off the mountain for an overnighter. In El Dorado National Forest-
