    I've trundled pretty much all round Western Europe over the past few years, just take September (+ a week or two here and there) off and go. I always take far too much stuff "just in case" but it gets easier and the load gets smaller every year. If I could work out how to keep my butter cool, I'd be totally happy!

    Land,
    Nice trips you had there. It's good to see you and your wife always smiling.

    I have an itch for a longer journey.
    I tried yesterday but didn't get very far.

    I think there are rules against posting porn on this site. Almost impossible to get an AT here, but there's one for sale on Adv. Hopefully, I'll be back on a bike this summer again after a long delay after a crash.

    Took a 6 week trip out west one year. At that time I thought the world was easy camping like in the Midwest. No so. In some areas such as the plains of Colorado and camp grounds near the ocean there were no trees. Tent camping the only option and no wood for campfire to be found either. Bring a ground pad and a stove of some kind, alcohol stoves are easy and cheap to make or buy. If you have to go to ground that is just the adventure of camping. Safe travels.

    Ahhhh, this thread makes me want to go out and get an adventure bike and do someo motorcycle hammock trips in the WORST WAY!! I have two sport bikes in the garage (GSXR 600 & GSXR 750), but they don't like dirt roads at all

    I'm seriously thinking about an on/off road bike now. There are so many good options out there now though, it is just another thing I will have to research to death

    Here is a little to get you started.

    If you are a hardcore Suzuki man: V-Strom 650
    Cheap and cheerful on mostly paved roads: Kawasaki Versys (or the new Versys 1000 if you need the power and load capacity)
    Connoisseur's choice: Triumph Tiger 800XC
    Big money, big bike, big fun: KTM 990 Adventure
    Budget adventurer: Suzuki DR650SE
    Supermodel: Ducati MultiStrada 1200


    I've heard BMW makes bikes now, but I'm not sure about those.
