I ride a Suzuki Burgman 650 here in the States. I know a lot of folks tent camp. What about using a hammock? It would seem to have some advantages (weight, bulk, cold hard ground, flooding, leaks, etc.). I remember I saw a photo on the 'net of a guy in Eastern Europe, who'd slung his from the handlebars of his bike to a low iron fence, and stretched the 'rain fly' over his hammock the same way (his butt was about 3" off the ground). Anybody want to wade in or comment?
