I thought my Excel spreadsheets were pretty good. Ha! Nice work!
PS. $75 for an oil change?! :eek1
Fake data. Had to plug some stuff in to show how it worked. Imagine you are taking your bike to a Harley dealer.
Very nice! Thanks
Excellent work. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for sharing.
I'll modify it for clarity as I ride solo trip (on one bike, that is). Since I budget for performance certificates, I'll have to add lines for that...
Very handy. Thanks!
Thanks , By using this tool it seems I have money left over from what I originally was planning. Never hurts to have a little extra....
I plan my expences at $100 per day per bike. I usually come in under that but not by much when traveling alone. There is a bit of redundant savings with 2 bikes. primarily camping/ hotels. and groceries..
Gas is 10-15
camping is 30 (incl firewood) If you walk in, as online as fees (reserve america) can make a mom-n-pop hotel a bargain versus camping
Local tourism 15
Obviously how you travel is a huge variable, I usually set up camp in an area for a few days and do excursions in the area then pack up and move on. on a smaller bike it is nice to not have to carry gear all day every day. For that the 100 buck budget sends me home with cash in hand or allows a few more added days at the trip’s supposed end.
I primarily travel the eastern US on a 650 cc bike
This is great! Thank you
Nice tool! Thx
Thanks for this! I can be a bit of a head-in-the-clouds-guy, but something like this puts manners on that - drives it home that without planning, aspirations will remain aspirations.
Planning all the bike gear, cameras, clothes, the route... All great fun, but addressing the finances is crucial.
I've modified the spreadsheet to my own style & preference, but the fundamental notion is still there!
Cell R24 needs a tweak to the formula. I put in some data from my last big trip, total cost was only $2,392.34. I left the $500 in the Beginning Savings Amount and the default 8 days to departure. Extra savings needed is correct at $1,892.34, but the 'Monthly Savings Neccesary' is showing $7,196.63.
There needs to be another IF statement that says if the Monthly Savings Neccesary is more than the Extra Savings Needed, then just display the extra savings needed.
Think I'll take a look at that after my trip to Alaska.
One note on food costs...I usually attribute half of that cost incurred since I eat even when I am home going nowhere.
Just downloaded the file. Thanks for the work that went into this.
Very cool, I envy your ability to use excel I still struggle to make a decent maintenance spread sheet for my bikes
Freakin' way groovy spreadsheet. Thanks !!!
Hey, this rocks. I wish I'd seen this a couple years ago when I made something similar-but-less-cool. Mine did Canadian currency conversions and gas price conversions.
