Hi Guys,
Just spent two days reading through the posts...! A wealth of info, Cheers.

I live in the UK, and want to fly to New York, and go from there all the way home via:-
US
Canada
Alaska
Fly to Japan
Korea
China
Vietnam
Cambodia
Thailand
Back through China
Mongolia
Kazakhstan
Uzbekistan
Turkmenistan
Iran
Armenia
Turkey
Istanbul
Bulgaria
Romainia
Hungary
Austria
Germany
Luxumburg
Belgium
France
London

I have worked this out on Google Earth, and can think of nothing else now...!

Any advice would be appreciated. This, and reading through these and other websites is the only planning I have done. I want to go in 2007/2008, would it last about 3 - 4 months?

Cheers
Jay

3 to 4 months ... Not travelled much? Unless you don't want to see much (in that case just buy a round the world air ticket) and have some exemption from speeding fines, you will want a lot more time.

Take a read of people who have done trips - "Travellers Stories" - look at the time lines.

See posts on china ... getting a bike in and not paying for an escort may be difficult.

---- You will need a lot more than 2 days to read every thing and absorb it here. Consider the weather. Consider the distances. Consider what you want to stop and see. Consider that you will need to stop for say a day out of every 7 to relax wile doing the washing, changing the oil, getting new tyres...

Do a small trip first - say Europe. A few weeks - see the speed at which you want to travel and the amount of time you want to stop. remember you will be on the road for months so doing the washing, shopping and banking all take more time than a preorganised week or two away.
