Going camping at Manchester Beach in a couple of weeks... trying to work out if I'm riding up and hubby is solo in the car (with enough camping and fishing gear to last us a week) or if I need to play nice and chauffeur him around in the car... :)

Lol! If I was solo I can load enough onto my bike to last a couple of months but his definition of camping is waaaaaaayyyy more heavy duty and if we both went on the bike I would need to pull a trailer ;)

And I am yet to convince him to go helmet shopping. One day it will happen... honest!

Ya definitely would make it easier if he was on the same boat with you. Wife and I have our own bikes know but we used to do it on one , an old Virago 750. 12,000 miles in two seasons. one 2 week ride 3,000 miles, From the northern Ca. mtn to the Sierra NV mtn to the deserts of NV and AZ Lake Havasu to Salton sea and into San Diego and back up the coast. Then one week ride 1,700 miles up into Oregon, Klamath Falls, Crater Lake to Washington back down the coast.. The rest of the miles were weekend or 4 day trips. camping all the time. Yes enough food to survive for 2 weeks in the wilderness, tent, one burner stove, did I mention cold weather and rain gear as we visited places like Tahoe, Yosemite, Mammoth in mid to late October. The bikes max load was 525 lbs and it weighed only 500 lbs. Our combined weight and gear was over 500 lbs. It had air assist front and rear shocks. Here is a couple pics.
