    See, that’s the thing, without making a big deal about it: they can’t disallow you if you don’t ask.

    I am doing my best to not draw this out and send this entire thread to the basement...again. Nuff said.

    Here in Colorado there are lots of black bears. So, it is essential to keep all food, gum, toothpaste, etc and food preparation items far from your tent. I've had a bear step on my foot while I slept in a tent; sniffing me out. But, that's the out doors! They're hunting for food, so don't give anything they can easily pick.
    Cheers!

    I roll with a small camper these days and a dirt bike (plated).

    Yeah, most of the posts are the opposite of "stealth", but, cool nonetheless

    Yah lol Kinda hard for most of us to actually stealth camp with a 1200ish motorcycle. I'm actually looking at downgrading to a Tenere 700 once it comes to the US so I can actually do more off-road stealth camping type shit. I plan to do the TAT and see all national parks, I don't plan to do it on a 600lb motorcycle that gets 39mpg lol.

    When I first started riding, I really wanted a cruiser... but I still made it off road to some hidden places in the woods! 3CCBDB52-3C82-4CC3-975E-2FFAE8DD71B1.jpeg

    A key point to remember, wherever you stealth camp, is to leave no trace.
    This was behind a small church in AR a couple of months ago during a fly-and-ride. It was cold, very windy, and I was constantly sliding down the gentle slope. My Garmin watch said I got 1.5 hours sleep that night. Good times! And no, the bike didn’t fall on me while I slept. I actually started several feet uphill from where I ended up next to the bike.

    Those are great bikes, I've had two of them (Suzuki LS650)! The only thing I did was to add a rack, bags and a better seat. I've ridden mine from Colorado to British Columbia and back.

    Truly, you can SC with any bike. Maybe the bigger bikes are more of a challenge, getting them off the beaten path and whatnot, but still doable.

    It’s a technique, to be sure. #DontGetCaught
