bike trip support vehicle

Hello to you all, my first entry !2 years ago I cycled around the world, last year I road around the world on my old XT600 & loved every moment, so much so I want to go again, this time in my Suzuki Jimny, this will be fully prepared by me & would serve well as a support vehicle for a couple of bikers who dont want the agro of carring all the heavy items needed, I would be able to change tires, straighten bent rims, frames etc, this is a hastily added thread and a tester for responses, I am not looking to be paid for my services this is a team event in the making !

This sounds like a great idea. Bikes can ride light so no need for big bikes, which in my view would make the ride more enjoyable.
