The view rolled on forever and we just pulled off into a field of freshly baled grass and rode up over the ridge and parked the Tiger behind a bale. We laid the sleeping bags on the ground in the shade of the bale and watched the pheasants in the distance. There was a nice breeze and no mosquitoes. We slept out under the stars.

I want to start a thread of favorite camps. Just give a short discription of the camp and post a picture.
Sounds like a great trip!

If you don't mind me asking, what's the age of the kiddo you took on the trip? I have a 12 year old daughter who has been camping with me countless times, but never on the bike. Anyone have advice or experiences to share along the lines of taking kids on motocamping adventures when they've reached the 'I'm-too-cool-for-you' age?
