Where and how far

Post by Jim Lovell » Wed Aug 29, 2012 7:03 am

If you had £8000 budget, time, bike, camping kit and an understanding missus :whistle:
Where would you be heading?

Totally hypothetical of course, no ones that lucky hey Barcelona Pat :P :kiss:

Yes, that would be my thinking as far as possible as cheap as possible. I'm not sure if that budget would stretch to get a flight from Magadan to further afield.

Ferry to Holland, ride through Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Germany and Back to Holland. Basically clockwise ride around the Baltic. Time and money permitting I'd spend a few days exploring St Petersburg and Talinn and possibly detour to the south of poland to go and see the death camps.

The Trans American Trail and the Trans Canadian Trail if the budget stretched that far! And with that budget a lot of rough camping involved.

That would be awesome! I guess on that budget you could fly out and do some of it, even buy a bike there then sell it after.

Not sure how much it would eat from the budget to ship the bike over the pond.

Fly to southern India, buy an Enfiled and ride north until you run out of money and then sell the bike to cover the fare home. (hopefully)

DUBBER. And Orlando haave my vote..why ride through expensive tolls and fuel charged europe..just get cheap flight to east..then buy local economy bike think 125cc then see the place and sell bike on...

We did Senagal and the Gambia for 14 mnths on a old suzuki 125cc enduro two up..stopped in local digs with mozzie net..totaly out of this world..got back what I paid for bike...

India,Thialand..malaysia you could do 12mnths..being frugal and loose some weight too..want a passpatoo..
