I’ll take the crisp, cool days of fall, spring, or even winter over the summer heat any day, and nothing puts me in a good mood faster than strapping my camping gear on the bike for a long weekend. We found ourselves camping in Pennsylvania a while back, and had a great time riding the […]

Stealth Camping

Aug 29, 2016 View Comments by

There is an art to what I call “stealth camping,” and as traveling motorcyclists, it is something that we have probably all done at least once. Camping along the road is often necessary for a variety of reasons. However, it does not come naturally for many, but it is a very useful tool. Using this […]
