But they do not look to stable when main use is cuppa morning or night, normally cooed in the kit storage area of tent...
I have a Coleman F1 which is similar in design and is very stable, as long as the ground is level but that's the same with any stove. It uses gas canisters. It's over 10 years old and is still going strong after many fishing trips and also being used on bike trips in the UK and Europe.Not sure if they still make them but I'm sure if they don't they'll have an alternative. I'm all about travelling light so the smaller the stove the better. Keeping your cooking set small is also useful, I use a carp fishing setup, there's hundreds on ebay to choose from.

The butane gas canisters are crap when it's cold, they frost up and don't produce enough gas as they such the heat from the tin to boil the gas in the tin, propane mix is better, but I prefer proper propane canisters to the low mix cassette type.

Stoves are stoves...they provide heat. Cooking wise, this is the one I have:

Stoves are stoves correct but they are not all the same and the gas/fuel you use with them varies greatly, I've cooked on most things and there is something for every budget.

This is why i would get a dual fuel unleaded petrol one, you don't have to carry gas cannisters you just take some out of your tank, and if you are really clever you would use a turkey baster or some other method that is quick and simple :lol: :thumb:

@dynax yup if you don't mind messing about with petrol it's great to cook on, as you have the canister you may as well have it filled, as I like ease of use Im happy with gas.

And that's why of a cold morning on the boat your first pee is on the Gas Bottle in the gas locker, your first brew happens much quicker....

Obviously you will need a tent, don’t get for two people, it’s small. Get for at lest 3 or 4 people, sleeping bag, if u are not used to sleep on hard surface than u need air mattress, self inflated camping mattress are to bulky. If u fancy coffee or tea in the morning, u need camping gas stove, torch,
Thats is, basics
its the cookin food part Im thinking off really. if i go fishing etc i can take large pans and a big stove. but for the bike thats all too much. im good with fires but wouldnt want to break rules anywhere and some places have banned them in the heat for good reason.
Depends, if u are at camp site maybe they have barbecue area, but if u are somewhere on your own you just build small pit and light your fire, piece of stick to put your fish on and u don’t need a stove, pan or plate.
Sometime u just dig a small hole in the soil and u don’t need a pit.
Make it simple, my wife and I we were on the same bike and we used to go 2 or 3 weeks camping. Everything will fit on the bike.

Oh not for me, highly flammable liquids should be kept handled as little as possible, and not near tents or boats...

All because of a leaking carb float valve....
