About 6 years ago I had an old 1000cc Virago and got interested in touring/camping. The problem was, my wife didn't want to know. It was the thought of crawling in a tent on her hands and knees and fighting to get dresses in the morning. I said to her that if I could carry a tent big enough to stand in would she try it for a weekend, to which, she reluctantly agreed. I bought a tent but there was no way could I get it on the bike along with the other camping stuff so I started thinking, probably too much, but I came up with the idea of a trailer. The trailer was built and we went camping for a weekend, her verdict was that she hated it but enjoyed it at the same time. Since back then things have changed quite a lot, I now have an even bigger tent and more creature comforts. The wife really looks forward to our trips away but now due to her long term health issues we can't get away on the longer trips too much. This August will probably be our last long adventure on the bike, a 3000 mile trip to Austria. Early next year I'm looking into buying a van to transport the bike and tow a caravan so we can still get to far away places. She'll be ok on shortish rides, just not the long 3-400 mile days we have done. Keeping the wife happy and creature comforts while touring and camping,,anythings possible.
