You don't have much room on your bike. Having a Motorcycle Equipment Checklist will assure you have everything you need when you hit the open road. The last thing you want to have to do after a long day on the road is to stop and pick up what you for got.
Having the basics is the first place to start and add on from there. Think about why you are doing this type of camping, who you are going with and how long you are going be on the road.
Look over the list below, there is at least a couple of items you may not have thought of. Now how much room do you have? This will narrow the packing list down, as to what is important and what is not. Notice that several of the items are the same as what Backpackers would pack.
Obvious items that are not on the list is tools and a repair kit which you should always carry on your Motorcycle. That is something that you have to determine base on your type of bike. Review the Motorcycle Camping and Motorcycle Camping Tips for more information.
