Camping gear...100% yes unless you have an unlimited budget
yes cheap places to stay are available everywhere but that means going into towns when its not necessary when you could wild camp or go to a site and it increases your budget exponentially and shortens your riding day
nice to see your set up the way you laid it out but when you do a border crossing solo you will need to take in your duffle and your tank bag as well and your helmet so you'll be carrying 3 things
