Wasn't trying to knock everyone with gear and comforts. I've got plenty of gear and a nice bike too. I was just simply taking a look at the simpler & raw side of motorcycle travel and appreciating where it began in its natural form. As the last sentence said, " Really makes you appreciate the simplicity of motorcycle travel in its original honest form." I'll gladly travel with my bluetooth, good waterproof tent and thermorest. But I also have an appreciation for the bare bones style the writer of the story in the link used.
Please don't everyone get their panties in a wod.
