Camping in a tent is the only way to camp. You get to experience the dirt and heat up close and personal. Potentially rabid wildlife that might have large teeth and/or claws? Don't worry, that nylon sweat lodge you're in will protect you. Either that or you will get to experience the wildlife up close and personal. It's all part of the adventure.
Combine that with a motorcycle journey and you've nature'd it up about as much as possible. Nothing makes you experience the great outdoors like a grasshopper to the nose-hole at 60mph. Follow that with a mud bog that swallows your wheels quicker than a diet of sugar free gummy bears through the large intestine.
Three cheers for Nature!
