I'm easing myself back into motorcycling after 10 years or so, and I'm going to take some trips(modest compared to many of your trips) with my ancient 1982 Suzuki SP500 dual sport machine. I need to have compact gear, as this machine doesn't have much room. Any tips on a good, small cooking stove, and maybe some pros and cons about the different fuel types? I'll be by myself, so it needs to be a one burner for sure. Also I better get some kind of sleeping pad (for these 46 year old bones). How about tents? I would need a 1-2 person, and rain is always possible here in Washington State. Also a super compact sleeping bag( for summer and maybe some spring time use). Any suggestions about tank bags etc? There is pretty well nothing out there as far as bolt-on saddle bags or racks for this older machine. A street tank bag would be grossly oversized. I put a Clarke Mnfg. 3.7 gallon fuel tank on this bike, as the old one had only 2.7 gallon capacity, and had a rust hole in it too. I plan one or two shorter trips on a shakedown basis, then maybe a couple of trips a little longer. Thanks for your input, I figured this was the list to ask for help.
