Rubbish  :shock:

Camping in a Van with a few  :shy:  home comforts installed is a liberating experience.

You heard it here first.

Another factoid for you non believers (and non KTM owners)..

KTM's are generally a very brilliant orange in colour, this takes some maintenance to keep the orange topped up. The manual recommends twice weekly UV treatments, this is another good use of the Van.  :)

You saying a couple of grow lights is all it takes to get girls into the back of a van over your side of the pennines?

no chair, stove, cooking gear or food either  :haha:

I had to pack that on the 250cc bike or we would have had no bacon rolls for breakfast.

It's impossible to go camping in a Van, by default that is Vanping  :)
