Hi all - first post...
Will spare you the life story but I first learned to ride bikes in India (totally inadvisable and dangerous). Since then I've only ridden heavy bikes in India (Enfield 350 and 500's) because it's so easy to rent there with a standard car license.
Anyway, my experiences have inspired me and I'm thinking about London to Sydney, and even beyond - overland. I'm a freelance photographer and sometimes I teach English, but I mostly avoid work, hence I'm always skint (but no mortgage, kids, car loan etc).
So I'm interested to see what you lot think of doing such a long trip on a 125cc ? - was thinking something like a YBR, Honda GC or Derbi Terra 125. I'll be alone, I won't have a lot of cash (but probably enough) and always travel light... I wanted something that is 100% reliable, sturdy, economical and most of all cheap to run, ride and insure (and for the carne de passage).
