[b]can you help me?

im looking to travel by bike around australia possibly camping in farm fields.
does anyone have a decent ground MAT they would recommend?

Hello Mark,
I would recommend a small mat because you dont have enough space on your bike to carry a big one. Also, a small mat is lightweight. However, there is more room to sleep on a big mat. To be honest though, I would take two small mats.

P.S I like mats.

make? model? how much? where to buy?

I would recommend the 'compact' mat from mats r us. They're really cheap and they also give you a free 'clean your mat brush'.

I hope this has answered you question.

Is this a joke thread?

By the looks of things there a 2 types of mats, big and small, with the big ones being harder to carry on a bike because they are, wait for it, bigger!!

Also, mats are bought at mats r us, and the brush you clean your mat with is called a ''clean your mat brush"

Please tell me this is a joke, right?

this is no "joke" thread...
how dare you assume such a thing??
its very hard to find the perfect mat....
if i'm seeking assistance on a forum its because i'm at my roads end.
i'm struggling to find the mat needed to sleep in comfort in my traveling days ahead.
your support would have been gladly taken in this matter instead
of attacking my thread with you accusation of being a "joke".
i'm highly insulted.
