    Thanks, Guy
    I added it in the Bare Essentials section with a note, sometimes used in place of tent.

    Re: Motorcycle Camping - The Basic Checklist

    Hi
    First post from me as a newbie.. I'm off touring for bout 12 months round Europe, mostly camping with occasional motel stay - It's not an endurance thing for me, just pleasure, so joined your forum to get new ideas and views on products. It's been very good, thanks folks!

    A couple of additions that I've found of benefit in past travels:

    I wear dogtags with ICE info, blood group, name and DOB.
    I also take all bike documents, obviously D/L, Ins, & MOT, plus maintenance logbook - a friend once suffered a breakdown in France on a new bike. The dealership declined to fix under warranty as they had no proof that servicing had been carried out at correct intervals.

    Thanks

    Steve

    Welcome Steve! Good idea on the Tags, I used to have one of my old Army Dog Tags on my keyring until I remembered it had my SSN# on it. Then I got paranoid that if I lost my keys someone would have my SSN#, so I took it off. I need to have some new ones made with information I want known.

    Re: Motorcycle Camping - The Basic Checklist

    Was wondering .... the tip about the zip-lock baggies and flys. Could the baggies be hung from spring type cloths pins strung on a rope ?
    Also, woud this work to keep away those nasty little blackflys we have up north?

    I've done so much with so little for so long ... Now I can do nearly anything with almost nothing.

    Good advise... I do that but it's second nature and never thought about actually adding it to the list... thanks!

    I finally did what I had been meaning to do for a long time. I edited my wife's contact info. in my cellphone to "ICE Wife Sandra" prior to my last trip. She actually found that funny! EMS and law enforcement officers started to get more training on looking for these things. Kinda like Medical Alert bracelets.
