For starters... While car/boat camping, I have a two burner Coleman that has been great. It's cheap, works well even though it uses gas like no tomorrow..
For the bike I have an MSR Dragonfly, an MSR Pocket Rocket and new in my stable is an MSR WindBurner.
I like the MSR gear, but realize there is other great stuff out there.. And no I don't take all 3 MSR stoves with me at the same time. :lol3 All depends on what I am doing..

For 50P in 1971 i purchased a radius stove in a battered tin. Its been my main stove ever since, its been all over the UKNew zealand europe and north Africa and after 50 years its lost the tin lid which was bent / batered when i got it and it split and cut me one night so i slung it. other than that its been 100% i have not had my 50Ps worth out of it yet and im not looking for a replacement.

Zackly like this un. No 19 apparently.

I have had a few different stoves for camping off the bike. My favorite is the cheap stoves off of Amazon.

They pack up extremely small. Unlike the Jetboil, these stoves have a good flame adjustment, so they are better for cooking. The Jetboil is just good for boiling water. These stoves are very inexpensive.

Buy an inexpensive pot/pan kit from Amazon too and you are pretty well setup.

I have an 18" two burner Partner Steel / Cook Partner stove for truck camping. It's an excellent stove, but I wouldn't pay today's prices for one. I usually use a 1/4" thick aluminum Partner Steel griddle with the stove, and add a layer of non-stick oven grade foil to the cook surface for easy clean up.

I have two JetBoils that I used for backpacking. The original JetBoil is now part of the truck camping kitchen. I still use it for boiling water for beverages and rehydrating or heating side dishes to go along with whatever is being prepared on the Partner Steel stove. I bought the second JetBoil Sol Ti to cut weight from my backpacking kit, but now I use the titanium cup with a different stove.

Like Yinzer Moto, I use a very small canister stove for backpacking (and now moto-camping), a BRS-3000T. It's titanium and weighs 25g, yet still has decent flame regulation and is efficient when paired with the titanium JetBoil pot. At $25, it's hard to believe such a good stove is so light and cheap. A rare find, easily paired with a lightweight pot: http://rutalocura.com/?page_id=6004/

I bought the stove as part of a kit designed round the use of that pot. It includes some titanium foil to better integrate the stove with the pot, and a flat carbon fiber lid to further reduce weight. I wish Ruta Locura still sold the kit, but JetBoil no longer sells the titanium pot because people were overheating them and destroying the flux ring. I've used the BRS-3000T with other pans and it works well, but it benefits from wind protection even more without a flux ring on the pot. I don't recall the weight for the entire cook system, but it's only a few ounces total.

If I start traveling where canisters are rare, I may find a gasoline fueled stove. I've used a canister stove above 12,000', so I'm not concerned with elevation issues in America, but I could also see a need for a non-canister option if traveling abroad due to elevation.

That's what I use on the bike. I've been very satisfied with it as well. Just make sure you're on a level surface.

That's the one I use in the deer blind. Mine eats gas like crazy, but it sure does the job.

We have these in all the deer blinds at the Ranch

Being in Texas, you run it on low for 15 min, then turn it off, and repeat till Bambi takes single tap to the temple or heart.

I've always thought it threw off enough heat on HI, it could fry an egg in a pinch.

After seeing ZoomerP s 18" two burner Partner Steel / Cook Partner stove, I started looking for something 1/5th of the price.

Lowe's makes this travel stove with lockable lid.

for the price I might just order one in, and store it in the MC Trailer

Looks ok, except I can't tell if it has anything covering the burner to protect it when it's used as a grill. There's a photo of the burner without a cover, so maybe not. If you get one, it wouldn't take you long to make up an insert. Otherwise, grilling will make a giant mess of the lower box and probably lead to a grease fire.

I've thought about one of those, but I doubt I'd like waiting that long. Hard to beat for a reliable, compact, dead simple heat source, though.

Thank you for pointing out grease management

I'll keep looking, there is also a 2 burner version that has a really nice grate (Which is an important feature to me). It comes with the SS "tents" over the burners
