On the Road!
Stay healthy and happy!
So you've done it - got inspired, planned your trip, packed your stuff and you're on the road! This section is about staying healthy, happy and secure on your motorcycle adventure. First, though, you have to get there! It's great if you can just ride your bike out of your front yard and go overland all the way. But that's not always possible. Sometimes you have to ship the bike over an ocean or a war zone!
