My husband goes on a lot of motorcycle trips and when he goes he and his friend usually camp. I recently went on a trip with him and the thought of sleeping on the ground did not appeal to me. I bought him a pad a couple of years ago but I went and bought the Therm-a-Rest Trail Comfort Sleeping Pad for myself. The Therm-a-rest Traiil comfort sleeping pad gives you more comfort and padding then your typical sleeping bag. It is an inflatable but it is not very thick which makes it easier to put on the motorcycle. It is less thick than my husbands pad, but I think it is just as comfortable if not more so. The pad has some foam inside of it that is still thin enough to be rollable. Since it does have the foam doesn't require anywhere near the amount of air that most pads would need. You do have to blow in to it. My husband's pad is self inflatable which is nice, but after only about 20 blows this one is ready to go, and most of the time it takes less than that. The air valves are very easy to work with. You just twist them open and closed. The material of this pad is very tough so even if you are laying over rocks it will still stay nice and not get damaged. When the pad is fully inflated it is kind of on the large side, mine is a good couple inches wider than my husband's which is great for me, but if you have a small tent that might be a problem. Lucky for us we have a big tent, so my husband, myself, and his friend all fit in there very easily. This is a nice pad that makes sleeping outdoors not so bad, and it fits on the motorcycle along with my husband's so that makes me happy.
