Which Bike to take overlanding on the back of a unimog?
I am really hoping i can recruit some experience here to help choose my first bike in preparation for a trip. I am trying to pass my direct access course whereafter i will be using the bike to commute around london. This, however, is all in preparation for a 2 year trip up west africa and south america we are planning.
We are going in a unimog (large 4x4) but after a recent trip i realised what a pain it is to be dependant on a tractor to get you in and out of town and to do small day trips.
It proved great at doing the long distance stuff and carry my cold cheese and
s but otherwise we really need to try and carry a bike on the back.
Please could you help me choose the best bike for the job??
It needs to carry 2 with some supplies/luggage comfortably on day trips, cope with the conditions, be servicable by myself and have spares available but be light enough to be able to strap to the arse of a 4x4.
Finally, is anyone aware of a good system for strapping bikes onto the back of a vehicle.
Sorry for the long message. Any help appreciated.
