    So my brother and I decided to try motorcycle camping this weekend. Started out by packing my bike. The I repacked until I had a quarter of the gear I started with and I still had everything I needed.

    I was riding a 1999 tw200, and my brother was riding a 2001 yamaha ttr225.

    We had to stop a couple times to rearrange our gear

    We rode 72 miles to Trailbridge Lake up on Hwy 126 on the McKenzie pass in Oregon.

    It was only an hour and a half ride, but It was the longest ride I've done to date. The bike pulled the mountains real good with all my gear and my 280lbs bulk I love these bikes.

    Next time I'm going to take more pictures.

    I've always enjoyed motorcycle camping. It's amazing at just how little you really need to have a good trip. It looks like you had a good one. Thanks for the pictures.

    Good job. Great to see the photo contest guy getting out on the trail. Yes, you will have to take more pictures so you'll have a collection to include in the contests yourself. ....and for us to see. Sounded like a good "shakedown" cruise to see how things work.

    Thanks for sharing your "longest ride". I suspect many more to come as the TW is so much fun.
