  • Ridin' around the world

    Found this linked on another site...This guy is riding his 1975 Shovelhead through Europe and the middle east.
    Pretty interesting stuff. I think he has ridden a couple of bikes "around the world"

    here is the list of the other rides....
    2010 Europe & the Middle East (75 Harley Bobber)
    2009 Around the World ('62 Harley Chopper)
    2008 Europe (TDM & Guzzi Falcone)
    2007 Europe (TDM850)
    2006 Around the World ('48 Indian Chief)
    2005 Europe & N Africa (KLR650)
    2004 Europe (KLR650)

    I just spent most of the day going thru all 76 pages of his last ride. I would love to be able to make a round the world trip on a bike.

              If you would reside to take the nomadic trip and stick to it, the cost would not be as much as people believe. The big cost factors are transporting the bike across the pond, and lodging. Getting your bike across the atlantic is going to cost either way unless you know someone or get a deal working for your passage which I know a few people have done. You basically agree to be part of the crew and work like a slave for your passage. And living like a nomad will cost you zero for lodging. Hmmm now I am starting to mentally justify a trip...


              Go back to work..

                If ya wanna have another good read over there, look in the Ride Reports section for a thread by CaveBiker. He and his wife took a '94 Sportster - two-up, no less! - from Wisconsin to South America and back. It's an amazing read.
