If you own a motorcycle, there is nothing as exciting as just taking off for a few days or longer and seeing as much of the United States as you can. If you are heading off on a road trip, motorcycle touring tents can be invaluable, and whether your travels take you to Yellowstone Park or along a historic route, a tent is a practical and money saving option. There are plenty of places where you can camp and enjoy some solitude, wonderful scenery and fellow bikers, perhaps even the sun rising over the desert, and in remote and isolated areas you can make camp almost wherever you want to.
There are campgrounds all across America, and although the facilities and amenities vary, they are mostly good quality, are clean, comfortable and safe. Planning out your route so that you can stay at a suitable campground each night is one option, although you may just want to wing it as well.
However, even if you do not want to have your route planned out in detail, it is a good idea to at least know what is available in the area in terms of campsites. Bad weather or a change of plan may force you to stay somewhere for the night, so it is good to know what your camping options are.
A motorcycle really is a great way to see the country, and these days it is just about impossible to get lost, thanks to the GPS system. You can also buy a cell phone that has a built in navigation system, and if all else fails, rely on a good map. A motorcycle also saves on gasoline costs and is much easier to park than a car or van.
Trying to find a parking spot for a large recreational vehicle can be almost impossible at some camp sites, and it can also cost a small fortune to fill the vehicle up with gas. If you have never taken a road trip on your bike, now may be the time to enjoy the adventure and you will find that a trip across the country on your bike can be the experience of a lifetime.
