BDR’s are incredible multi day off-pavement backcountry motorcycle adventures, and one of the best ways to experience the BDR routes is to camp along the way.

We’ve asked the moto-camping pro Benjamin Williams of Moto Camp Nerd to give us his recommendations for some of the Essential Camping Equipment you may want to take along with you on your next Backcountry Discovery Route expedition.

Before we get into the meat of the list of essentials, let’s take a minute to address that everyone’s needs are going to be different. This list is just a jumping off point. Take it and mold it to your own personal tastes and needs. If you have already tried hammock camping and love it, awesome! Switch out the tent recommendation for your favorite hammock setup (that’s versatile enough to work even if there’s no optimal places to tie off to trees.) Everyone also has their “luxury” items they bring along to make themselves feel a little more at home on the road. Just, try not to go overboard.
