    Re-watching my favorites
    This is the first video I watched but followed your journey/adventure every since seeing a flier at Folsom Harley in Folsom CA. Hooked every since. As a Blue Wife I really appreciate the work you do for first responders and military
    Thank you
    Enjoy the Ride

    some think tarping off to your bike looks all hard core and old school but... its really not. I have done it but.... its just not necessary. I can set my tent up just as fast. Im well protected. Takes up no more space. Shows Im actually prepared for whatever and... Ive never been hassled by anyone thinking I was camping or doing anything other than spending the night. Ive been doing doondocking trips with my Harley and tent for 38 yrs.

    Indonesian riders here, we're quite simple. Just stop at the mosque and you can sleep, bath, rest, and of course pray there. Here in Indonesia, mosque are a lot and spread all over the place.

  • Freddie Greer
    Freddie Greer 10 months ago

    I do the same thing, but I use a cheap blue tarp from walmart or any store I can find them that is normally about a 10' x 10'. I drive the bike onto it so I do not need to worry about the bike sinking as much and I place spikes about the middle then fold it back to the bike which covers the bike, leaves end that drape and keep me dry from rain also. The tarps are cheap, easy to fold, double as gear cover during riding as needed and easily replaced.
    Another tip is on cold nights, start your fire, cook your food, dig a slight ditch and place coals in it then cover with dirt and replace your tarp. this will warm the ground and you for the night.
    I also do the same with planet fitness or use truck stops and creeks, but those are really always cold baths. lol

    Damn, I have been doing it wrong, I don't think I have ever taken a shower on a run... As for camping, I just find a biker bar (every town seems to have one now) and usually someone will hook you up with a place to pitch your tent for the night.

I have been holding out for the right kind of male to come along, and it sure looks like Scooters disposition and eagerness to please you, is on par with my girl's demeanor.
