Moto camping is as basic or deluxe as you want it to be. Sometimes we like to pack just the essentials on our motorcycles and rough it. But most of the time when camping with family and friends for a few days of riding motorcycles and having fun, we like to have good tools and a few nice creature comforts. Here’s a packing list of items we have used in the field and found to be good quality and to make the camping experience easier and better.
Comfy Camp Chair With Side Table
It’s easy to overlook the lowly camp chair. That’s why it’s better to not pick a “lowly” chair at all, but a deluxe piece like the OL Guildlife Catskill camp chair with side table. These burly chairs work great around the fire and the built-in bamboo table with cupholders means you are way less likely to spill your precious beverage of choice after a long day riding. That very sturdiness means they are a bit heavier than some camp chairs, but they fold flat for easy storage/transport and are tops for comfort.
The Ultimate Motorcycle Adventure Hauler
Okay, we’re stretching it a bit here, but there is nothing better than a nicely finished van interior to shelter from the storm, wind or rain. Our custom Ford Transit was upfitted by Sportsmobile to carry three dirt bikes, have lots of moto-ready storage, and take a roof-top tent for multi-day riding adventures.
