Hi there everyone!
My name's Steve and I'm brand new to these boards although I've done a little browsing. I've just started to plan my 'great adventure'. I'm planning to do a six month road trip, hitting 48 states, around 21,000 miles, all on a motorbike.
At the moment I'm 21, so when I go I'll be 24. I'm aiming to have at least $20,000 available for the trip.
Due to the length of the trip, I reckon renting is not feasible. So that leaves me with the option of buying a motorbike and as I'm British that's obviously a little bit of a problem. I do have a couple of friends that live in California that I could use as an address. Is this the only obstacle I need to overcome, or is there more things I need to consider in this area?
Also do you guys think that $20,000 will be enough money? I hoping to buy a 7000 or so bike, and the rest of my equipment should be about 3000 which leaves 10000 for the actual trip.
As I said I've only just started to plan out this trip. No definite route yet. If you guys have any other advice/point to make please say. I'd love any input you guys have.
