    Greetings all,
    this is the beginning of my posts for a few adventures i am planning. It is now the middle of my planning stages, with much work still to do. You can expect this will be an ongoing thread for life, which i will link to further threads when day 1 begins.

    Lifetime Motorcycle World Exploration
    Mileage Allowance: 1 Million Miles
    Duration: 30 Years +
    Destination: All Places on Earth, 200 + Countries, all 875 land areas of the earth
    Bike: Not yet Manufactured

    I will spend the foreseeable future riding on two wheels exploring the surface of the earth, voyaging to the far out corners of the planet in search of raw & exhilarating experience, to front the essential facts of life. I will set out alone in freedom to encounter truth & natural Beauty - Through jungles, across mountains, glaciers, forests, desserts, continents and across seas.

    These individuals have given some very interesting reading, videos and inspiration: Shinji Kazama, Ed Culbertson, Helge Pederson, Nick Sanders, Ed March, Austin Vince, Walter Colebatch, Lyndon Poskitt. Well done

    If there is anything useful which one would like to share, i will enjoy reading of your posts along the way & perhaps il meet some of you out there one day. Happy riding

    Amazing intro. You have me wanting to read more already!

    What is your story?

    What bike will you prep?

    Have you already been living this lifestyle or are you cashing in on the daily grind?

    Where will this motorcycle adventure begin?

    Best of luck to you! I'm following along!

    In a spontaneous moment of engrossed imagination, at the third hour past midnight, I happening to set out alone upon the earth, to escape in near absolute freedom, from the familiar...

    Note: This is a random trip without any planning, the Epic Million Mile voyage is in the planning for quite some time yet. Here, a side thought... Without planning, without route, i do not know where I'm going or when i will be back. Why come back? Now my home is... The Road

    3 Days riding passed. 1500 miles now. Bikes mileage currently 113,000 miles. Painful long hours ripping across France in heavy thunderstorm. Clothes thoroughly saturated. Through some tunnels into another world. Arrived Grindelwald, Midnight. Snowed in the next morning, told impassable. Natives advised season is winter. Other vehicles all with snow chains. Summer tires on bike holding up well. SKI lift to top of mountain. Mountains Beautiful but big problem - accelerating down the mountain, out of control not sure how to steer or stop. Never Skied before. Crashed many times. Last crash bad, leg forced sideways, heard crack, assumed leg broken. Snowmobile SOS ride to doctor. First ride! Like Snowmobile very much. Leg seems ok. Ate apple Strudel. Mounted bike again 8pm, dark, snowing again, time to leave. Adopted special method for snow riding. Both legs out for stabiliser, skidding shoes on road, less than 5mph. Natives gave strange faces. After 2 Hours like this, slowly passed further South. Passed through approx 30 Tunnels in mountains. One Tunnel = 17Kmh in length. Powered on to Italy... Milan
