Over time, I have come across some gear that just makes it all work, from my motorcycle to the gear I wear, use, and depend. Here, I’ll provide my opinion on what I like, and do not like so much. In addition, over time gear wears, so I’ll share with you what worked well over time and what didn’t.
But first, I am getting one of these…
2014 BMW R 1200 GS – In my opinion, and apparently many others’ as well, this BMW is the ultimate “riding” machine.
Helinox Chair One Camp Chair – Amazing how comfortable and rugged this chair is for such a small, packed form.
Helinox Camp Table – Compliments the Helinox Chair and is of the same high quality.
Nemo Nocturne Sleeping Bag – Uber-high end sleeping bag, but super comfortable, warm, and it packs light, too.
Patagonia Down Sweater – Thin, lightweight, but oh so warm and comfy.
Therm-a-Rest Neo-Air Xtherm Sleeping Pad – Super light weight mattress that appears to have been made by NASA.
Therm-a-Rest LuxuryLite Cot – Another from Thermarest, it’s super light, super strong, and very comfortable.
RedVerz Expedition Tent – Wow. Heavy, but roomy as hell. And you can park your bike inside or get a respite from the weather.
Rev’It Poseiden GTX Riding Gear – Bomb proof. Comfortable. Stylish. Good for 20-100 degrees F.
Daytona Road Star GTX Riding Boots – Excellent touring boots. At the time of the review I had 6K miles on them.
Sena SMH10 – Bluethooth helmet communications. Phone, intercom, music, and linked to the Beemer, too.
