Anyone who can help me get on my feet in California?

I plan to depart January or February next year, is there anyone here kind enough to help me get started?

Somewhere to stay with someone who can help me whilst I buy a bike and put the title/insurance in my name would be greatly appreciated!

P.S No kidney thieves please!

hey pocket,
would be happy to let you crash at my place for a few days. i live in oakland (about 10 minutes outside of san francisco). there are tons of bikes here, so finding a good one shouldn't be a problem. Los Angeles will also have many bikes to choose from. I'm currently in the middle of a London-Minsk-Israel trip !!! but I'm back in the US on Aug. 8th and happy to help.

I don't know when I'll be back but you can stay at my apartment in Sacramento. You can put the title/rego in your name and use my address.

I'm in India now trying to figure out how to get my bike flown/shipped from Melbourne to Delhi. This country is great and if I can find a job that will pay me a good western wage, I might stay. If not, I'll be back in California (slim chance of South Korea teaching English).

Hey guys, thanks for being extremely helpful. I am purchasing my plane ticket shortly so I will let you know the exact dates and double check that it is still OK and whom it works best for. If something comes up please pm me here, I log in everyday to catch up on the latest news.

Garry Dymond I do plan to go through Mexico city and I will definitely take you up on your offer!

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
