Re: [Hammock Camping] Re: noob here! Hi
- Hi Boonie,
I ride a BMW R1200GS, just finished making a rear storage platform to carry my over packing camping gear! Taking a friend who is tenting it so I will carry his gear too since he is on a wee sport bike. I had a nighthawk too, fun bike.
I don't have the knees for bicycle trip although it sounds fun too.

What kind of bike do you ride? In my younger days I rode a Honda
