I have been motorcycle camping on a number of different bikes and all were great fun. The one bike that stands out would be the Yamaha Super Tenere due to it could handle a lot of gear, 110 hp to the rear wheel and you couldn't even tell you were carrying the extra weight. Even my Harley did OK but didn't like climbing the Adirondack Mountains fully loaded. I packed my 2018 speedmaster up the other night with full camping gear and took her for a 100 mile day which was to work and back, she did great. All my gear weighs in at 45lbs including a four man tent, cart, sleeping bag, sleeping mat, cooking gear chair and more. Still less weight than two up riding. Rok straps are the best for strapping everything down just make sure you get the full 1 wide ones. Here are some pictures of my bikes fully loaded with pretty much the same gear.
