Put the above caption in Google or your favorite search engine and you will get hundreds of hits for a camping list. Many are trying to list the most items they possible can. It must be a contest I'm not aware of. In many lists I see matches listed 3 or 4 different ways. This list has served me well for years. Print it out a few days before you leave, refer to it and you should have most everything you need on your trip.
You may think it will be hard to get all these items on a motorcycle. It's not hard if you choose your items carefully. For instance, our tent is a two person tent, when folded and rolled up it is about the size of a large thermos. The floor is 7 1/2 feet by 7 1/2 feet. We have a queen size air mattress (with coils, don't skimp on this) which just fits in one direction and leaves us about 18 inches at the door to store other items we wish to keep in the tent. The air mattress will allow you to eliminate the sleeping bags in the summer and you'll sleep like you're at home.
Place a card or sheet of paper with your emergency info on it in an easy to find place such as jacket or shirt pockets.
Have a great trip. Sincerely, Mick & Debbie Lindley, Hoover, Alabama
