One of my best investments for MC camping

    During June I will be leaving for an almost month long tour, I will be camping for much of it....One of the things that I have always had a problem with when MC camping is comfort at the campground. I mean, you arrive, set up the tent, get everything organized, maybe go out and have a bite to eat then come back to the site and look for a place to sit. not a lot of options, you can sit in the tent on the sleeping bag or mattress, sit on the ground or if you were lucky there might be a picnic table to sit at....none of which are really very comfortable. It would be nice to have a comfy chair with a back and armrest to sit in at the end of a long day on the bike but it's sort of hard to haul a lawn chair with you on a bike tour.......or is it? I found this on another touring site. Exactly what I needed, lightweight it folds up into a nice sack and fits into my saddlebag with plenty of room to spare. Not cheap but I think it will be more than worth it. After several hours in the saddle, I will be a happy camper at the end of the day.

    Looks cool, but you were right about it being pricey. Let me know how it works out.

    I love the Crazy Creek chairs. This one doesn't have the arm rest but they are great chairs. This also assumes that if you are young enough to ride and camp you are young enough to get up out of this chair! http://www.crazycreek.com/products-p...riginal-chair/

    Here is another version that might work. http://www.crazycreek.com/products-p...zy-legs-beach/

    Of course it's pricey, it's for motorcyclists.

    Maybe that's it, this old fart likes a little comfort at the end of the day and getting up off of the ground is indeed a royal PITA after about the 5th time.

    Like the web site said...the OP's chair is popular with BMW riders, for whom:
    a) $ aint a factor or they'd be riding something else
    b) space is a factor

    It looks great to me...I love the cup holder....

    I use this tripod chair from Bass Pro Shop. No armrest, but has a cup holder

    Maybe that's it....ever since I saw that K 1600 GTL in Rider magazine lasst month. Droooool. I have always told myself that I would NEVER spend that kind of money for a motorcycle.....checking out the retirement fund

    I would like to see a chair that can be taken apart with carbon fiber rods, has an inflatable seat and backrest.

    Or just a simple take apart frame that you can take your bike seat and attach to it.

    Or a detachable trunk that has a latch for the seat, you sit on your trunk but with your bikes seat and backrest. Or an extendable backrest. Like an extension piece.

    Just a few loose thoughts.

    I have a project at work fabricating a V shape frame to attach to the end of a powered log splitter, I have a crew of guys that make concrete septic tanks, and they need a ton of 5/8ths rebar two feet long bent in a V for when it goes in the mold box, but it takes too long to hand bend each piece, so I am building a jig that will bend a bunch at one time using a log splitter. Yeah, I know it takes money away from somebody, but with our economy and the price of gas every penny saved is a penny earned.

    Or how about a dehydrated chair where you just add water like for the food for backpacking! Then just toss it. You could have a different colour chair each day!
