Synopsis

A rapidly growing cross-section of motorcyclists have taken to camping, both to reduce travel costs and to add an extremely enjoyable dimension to their adventures.

With the wide choice of high quality products now available, camping by motorcycle has never been easier. But camping by motorcycle isn't just a matter of buying high-tech equipment. This book is loaded with practical information to help you enjoy the whole experience.

Format: Paperback
I found this book really helpful when planning all aspects of camping with a motorcycle. It's got it all, from what gear to bring, what bike to choose and preparing a camping spot, right down to which tent to buy and what food to cook.

I'd give it 5 stars, though it's biased towards camping in America as opposed to Europe which I am planning, though at the heart of the camping experience, it probably doesn't make much difference.

All in all, it's a good book to flick through, and makes for an entertaining and very informative read from cover to cover.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I was trying to find as much technical detail as possible about camping in relation to motorcycling which would assist me in planning future trips, both home and abroad, though not specifically America.

Which is where this book falls down unfortunately. The author is clearly very experienced in both motorcycling and camping but has never done either outside of his home country. As a result the book is aimed squarely at the American market and although a lot of the tips and hints, i.e. knots, water purification and cooking, are universal, all of the information concerning hotels, tourist information offices, campsites, national parks and rallies are of no interest unless you are actually intending to go to the states. Even the guide to tent buying contains only American model tents and it appears from this book that they favour those that can be pitched without a fly, undoubtedly because of the climate they enjoy. In contrast I struggled to buy a lightweight tent of this type recently and gave up trying in the end, which highlights a major difference in our camping cultures, or should I say weather!

Also the book was first printed in 2002 and I don't think that it has been updated much since then. Unlike -The Adventure Motorcycling Handbook by Chris Scott:

Adventure Motorcycling Handbook (Trailblazer)

This is a highly detailed guide which touches on every aspect of the subject, including camping, all around the world, and is frequently updated.

Not bad if you don't know how to camp 18 Aug. 2006
By Noah Spurrier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I can't say this is a useless book.

It's fairly well writen and covers the basics of camping.

My complaint is that at least 3/4 the book covers

the basics of camping and camping gear not specific to

motorcycle camping. If you have NOT gone camping before

and you want a book that covers both the basics of camping

and motorcycling in one book then you might be happy with this.

If you already know how to camp then you might be disappointed.

There are some useful contact resources for motorcycle clubs

and campgrounds and motocycle specific gear.

Lots of good advice 9 Dec. 2002
By "dogsoldier6" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you are thinking of piling your mountian of gear onto the back seat of two wheels and heading out across this great land I strongly urge you to jump all over this book lest you have a gaggle of experience. Those of us who have been doing it for years will find afermation to our ways of doing things. Those who have no experience consider this your workbook. He has written wonderful lists of what to take and described the gears usefulness and uslessness from a bikers point of view. If you are an old hand not much new here but maybe a couple of better mousetraps. If you are new to the sport....GET IT!!

Worthwhile 24 Mar. 2005
By Ivor Bowden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Lots of practical advice, some of which covers generic camping issues. Many points are covered which deserve consideration. Reading this book made me feel better about my upcoming motorcycle camping trip. An easy read - I consumed it in 3 hours, but I skipped the chapter on trailers (towing a trailer with your bike, not towing your bike on a trailer). Chapters are nicely separated and laid out, and need not be read in order, I jumped back and forth a bit.

silly simple 4 Jan. 2006
By Milton Freewater - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you have ever spent one night camping in a tent in your back yard, you know as much about camping as this author. There are no special insights offered...nothing that makes you say, "Wow. Why didn't I think of that?!" Buy a Boy Scout manual and you're way ahead of this silly book.

Motorcycle Camping Made Easy 17 Oct. 2007
By Mike Eggert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Some of the information was useful, if a bit dated. Most of the campsites were East coast locations and the one California site is closed. If you have backpacking skills and equipement (light weight, rugged, collapsible gear) and apply this information to motorcycle touring you probably don't need to buy this book.
For the dreamer, not doer, or for the amateur motorcyclist this book may be more interesting.
