Unless you're weighing the benefits of Kangarro vs Wombat while crossing the Simpson, this makes no sense.

This should be in one of the general lifestyle forums. Because it is lifestyle.
There are many threads about cooking while camping with the bike. That's bike specific, and addresses many of the common limitations.

Next, we could have a thread regarding the best colognes to wear for dual sport, street, and scootering. Which ones hold up best, etc.

I understand that you like this thread, and that it may be useful to you, but It's not moto specific.

This is something that would appear in the contents of Men's Journal, Men's Health, and other lifestyle magazines, trying to appeal to a broad audience, but always lacking significant detail.

Trip Planning it is not.

Im not mad - only disappointed.

OK, I can see some rational thought to your objections. A little more useful than "puss thread." You want it moved? Be my guest. I've got nothing valuable invested here.

Meh. It's something I got a few ideas from that were somewhat useful for my moto-camping efforts, but not really a big deal. Mostly I just don't like to see rude comments spewed about when you could've just closed the window, muttered "useless" to yourself and gone on to something better.

I do understand that with 24K posts you must feel somewhat protective of this place...

I'll have to take your word for that; never bothered to pay attention to that stuff.

Nope, I'm going to have to disagree with this.

Camping magazines deal with backpackers: it's got to be lightweight, and suffice for a 5-day trek into nowhere, and out.

Motorcyclists can carry more weight, and so we talk about better (not lightweight) stoves, cookware, and such. We usually also touch base with a gas station in the day, or a small town or outpost, which might give us access to limited groceries.

Men's Health might talk about ideal nutrition, but I'll tell you that a salad won't last long in my panniers this summer. However, I will tell you that Mori-Nu brand tofu can be kept indefinitely at room temperature, and that onions and bell peppers hold up after a day in your luggage and make a decent stir fry. That there are some heat-and-serve meals (not dehydrated) that keep the NaCl in check. It's not healthy eating at home, but it's healthy-enough on the road. I like it.

I'm the kind of gal, at the end of a ride, I can't eat crap food. Your physiology is one element in the ride, and if you've got a method that works for you, . If this thread ain't nothing to you, feel free to move along.

Honestly, they are not. But the bulk of the meal was the bread and vegetables, with the meat and cheese in moderation. We both commented that if we were at home, the meal is more likely to be just the meat and cheese.

Too bad this thread is devolving into a meta-discussion, and focussing on the loaded and now almost meaningless term "healthy."

If we want to talk about good ways to cook/pack while moto-camping, I'm in; as LR wrote, there are several other threads that are doing this.

One legitimate reason for this thread could be for folks with a malady like high-blood pressure and given the sodium content of most packaged/prepared food typically eaten on the road, a venue to hear better ideas for decent food on the road.

Given this thread is over six months old, I contend that the whiney bitching about it's relevancy is in itself irrelevant.

If the mods thought it should be merged with other threads presumably they would have already done so. If you think the mods are wrong on this score then complain about the mods not the thread.

Let's go back to the picnic table, kinda sorta. A table for two please.


Shrimp and potatoes.












The intended campground was closed on this next one. So, a side walk for two.

A packaged salad, small container of macaroni and potato salad, and a filet.






We had packed up wet this morning. Made the end of day in time for laundry, drying camping gear, and hors d'oeuvre.




















I consider cooking, in and of itself, an adventure.

IntoTheNew, you sir are a man after my own heart. These photos of yours are why I'm on this thread. I must confess to a bit of fear concerning use of a camp cookset; I'm a bit guilty of chickening out and not cooking (pun not intended). I'm with you: simple is the best (and healthiest) way to go when on the range.

By the by, I won't eat shrimp unless they're from the US. Who the hell knows what's in the farm waters from Thailand.

Has anyone used a hotel coffee pot to cook noodles before? Obviously I'm talking about spaghettini, vermicelli, cappellini and the like; nothing short and fat like farfalle or penne as I prefer at home...

Or China,


In the swankier hotels in China, you get a kick ass water pot for tea or noodles. They are much larger than any coffee pot I have seen in any other hotel/motel room, and heat water incredibly fast. I have used them beyond their intended purpose.



A homemade soup including noodles, jerk, fresh or dehydrated vegetables can be made in them rather quickly. Jerk meat is usually salted and spiced, I add it first. Boil, let set, boil, let set.......same for the vegs, last the noodles. I'm sure the patron that follows me has the best cup of tea of his life.

Stateside, the pots are just so small and you don't get a boil. I have used them for heated water for grits, oatmeal, cream of wheat, instant noodles, etc. Cooking a nine minute noodle though, I have never tried. On the Asian theme, if you would simply bring a large enough bowl you could make a crude hot pot.

12Volt Imersion Heater

So at the risk of inciting further peril, has anyone here experience heating water for their morning coffee or tea using a 12 volt immersion heater coil run off their moto's battery? Would the time it takes to boil a simple cup of water drain the battery beyond the ability to start the bike. Just wondering.

+1

I have Crohn's disease I am treating with a variation of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, under the advise of my physician who is a Crohn's survivor.
If I were to eat McJunk I'd be flopping around in bed and crapping blood again.
One of my biggest concerns with a planned month-long trip is how I am going to feed myself. I normally cook 90+% of my food from scratch, mostly well cooked meat and veggies.

Of course haters are gonna hate. Even if they worry about using the exact right brand of oil in their dirt bikes, they can't fathom why people might care what they fuel their own bodies on.

No kidding. It cracks me up when I hear people talk about the latest carbon gewgaw that reduces their bike's weight by 400 grams when they're 50 pounds overweight.

I decided to try some Old Bay seasoning the other day. Where have you been all my life, Old Bay?! Damn that stuff is good. I always knew I liked celery salt -- I'm a Chicagoan, and that stuff is great on a dog --- but this combination with paprika and black pepper is just awesome. Going to be in my bag for sure.

Interesting stuff there on the Shabu-Shabu. Had it in the P.I.; I know that hot pot thing is huge over in China. Fancy hotel there, by the way. I'm starting to get jealous of what all these adv cats do for a living; I graduate in a couple months and feel pretty lost.
