Camping and Travel Equipment


We intend to add the following information:

But we're like the restaurant proprietor we encountered in Nicaragua (and elsewhere), whose menu reflects what he would like to serve, not necessarily what is available to eat at this moment. At the moment most of what we have is links to other sites. However, we will not reinvent the wheel here, if a site has excellent general travel equipment information, we'll just link to it. We will try to provide information which is more specific to motorcycle travel, and particularly long-distance / life on the road type travel.

If you can add an article on any subject relevant to motorcycle travel, let me know, we'd love to have it!

In the meantime, please see the bulletin board (the HUBB) for posts on the following topics:

Camping equipment and all clothing - Tents, sleeping bags, stoves etc. Riding clothing, boots, helmets, what to wear when not riding, etc.

Read Equipment reviews - REVIEWS of ANY Motorcycle, Camping or Travel Equipment and accessories.
