The back packing tents and bags take up less space. When I go on a long haul, space is always a premium. As our travel plans rarely extend beyond north, south, east and west, I always have to be prepared for a place to stay. The cool places don't always have hotels. By now I should have learned to pack. I always end a trip with way more clothes than I started with, don't know why I even pack any.
Yeah, I'm really not seeing the point. I like camping. I like Indian Motorcycles. I do not feel the need to combine the two. If you want to spend the money camping, there is much nicer stuff out there by companies that actually specialize in it. If you want to spend the money on the bike, there are lots of great upgrades that are money better spend.
