I've always had the idea of traveling the world (backpacking) but hate the idea of endless public transport timetables and loosing some of that freedom.
I've since become really interested in doing it on a motorbike. I've got all the lightweight traveling/bushwalking gear from other trips, but don't have a motorbike or any associated gear. I plan to go from Brisbane to London and maybe beyond. I would like to leave when I have enough money (what is enough money?) and don't have an end time (up to five years). I will be looking for work anywhere along the way. By January next year I should have $20,000(Aust). If a motorbike and other gear (panners, riding pants and jacket, helmet ect) were to come out of this, would it be realistic to get the trip going with what's left over or should I wait longer.
Thanks for any advice.
I was spending about $1000 US dollars a month through Asia, so you should have enough provided you don't get a really flash bike and spend loads tricking it up. I like the minimalist approach, and you don't really need much beyond your documents. Even camping gear could get left behind as hotels are dirt cheap in Asia. I took camping equipment India to UK and barely used it, even though it accounted for a third of my gear.
