So, here's the plan: Next summer, I will (finally ) be graduating from university and I have this dream to do a year of motorcycle travelling through the USA. My intention is to do it very low budget (tent and sleeping bag). Since I'm from Europe, I have some practical questions I'd like to ask. -How do I get my bike there at a very low cost? I intended to find a ship that wants to take me and my bike in exchange for me working on board (maybe in the kitchen or something). Anybody with experience on this matter? -Can I ride my bike for an entire year with my Belgian License plate or do I have to register to get a US one? -What about insurance? Do they cover foreign bikes when you have no social security number? Are there other legal matters to be taken care of? -Is it easy to find temporary jobs to earn some money to live along the road? I'm thinking harvesting or working with cattle or in supermarkets or... -Any suggestions on things I just have to see or do? Routes to follow? I want to see as many different things and meet as many different people as possible along the way. -Any other concerns/thoughts/advices/...? Maybe this might never happen, but I like to keep the dream alive, and making plans somewhat more concrete certainly helps!
