What do you guys prefer, camping or hoteling? I'm also ok either way just wondering what the preferred method of recouping is among other riders?
Im not completely against against camping off the bike, but Ive become used to running light and splitting a cheap hotel room on similar type trips.

I can camp pretty comfortably off of my Wee with all of the storage it has.

+1 for can do camping, but prefer the ease in packing and lighter load that motelling offers.

Also- my biggest hang up with motel vs camping is leaving the bike outside in a parking lot in a place I don't know.

I've pushed mine into the room before.

The big advantage to having a beat to crap old thumper, is always being confident someone else's bike would get stolen over mine...

+1. Also, we could lock them together.
