In 2010, Gareth "Bok" Davey will be attempting a Trans-Africa trip on his trusty motorbike, a KTM990 Adventure. The idea is to head from South Africa through East Africa and on to Egypt. The route will be made up has Bok goes along but the aim is to try and see as many interesting people and places as possible. Bok will set off from Johannesburg in early March 2010.

I travel around the Southwestern United States and Baja Mex whenever I get another paycheck exploring ghost towns, mines, and native American ruins mostly.
Sometimes I take my KTM 450EXC and most of the time I take my Toyota 4runner. It's a low budget everyman's take on "overlanding."

While up mountains at 5000m, it is unwise to make massive, life-changing plans. The lack of oxygen may well be affecting you. So if you decide suddenly to go on a round-the-world adventure on a 21yr old motorbike for a year or more, think Very Carefully. Or just do it.
