Neil's two month trip in India on Enfields.
Paul and Laura did a 7,500Km trip around Europe on two Vespa scooters for their honeymoon.
3 month trip through Canada, Alaska, Arctic Circle and NW USA by 8 Aussies on BMW GSs.
During the years 2001 & 2002, Drew did Bloke on the Bike I & II, trips across Australia while "worked as a motorcycle based journalist, travelling around Australia for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, filing radio, TV and on-line stories." Lots of photos and info.
"Having trekked to Everest Base Camp, rafted down the Sun-Kosi River in Nepal, travelled extensively through the Australian deserts, rode BMW motorbikes through Asia, and travelled overland from Hong Kong to Pakistan through China we were after another adventure.
In 1998/1999 myself, Geoff Kingsmill, a computer consultant from Alice Springs Australia, my wife Kienny and nine year old daughter Su-lin shipped our Toyota Landcruiser to South Africa and then drove to London. The lure of Africa was just too much so in 2000 we spent two months travelling through the Sahara Desert in Tunisia and Libya.
Not being content, we hit the road again in 2004 and drove through Russia, Mongolia and Scandinavia to Europe, starting in Vladivostok on the sea of Japan and finishing in London, some 25,000km to the west."
Very good, plenty of info on Africa (of special interest is the Sudan - Ethiopia - Egypt bits); Russian and Mongolia. Please find the updated information on using a GPS in Russia and Mongolia.
Haydn and Dianne Durnell, Australia, Alaska to Ushuaia 2004-5, on a Harley-Davidson. Now on a GS, they're still going (2008 in India)

From Australia, around the world on a Harley, 1996 to whenever... As of April 2005, still going at 150 countries and counting. Great site, with lots of interesting stories and routes!
"Solo 7,000+ km trip around Europe in 2005 on a Vespa PX200. Everyone else my age, ie mid 20's, seems to do Europe via the rail systems or specific touring bus networks. The same old crowd seemingly shipping themselves from major city hostel to hostel, but what appealed to me was what was between these destinations, and this is where the adventures really were."
Around Australia on Vespa scooters, in support of the "Cure Cancer Australia Foundation".
