Hey, I haven't gone on a big epic adventure / trip yet, but I like following people's for the time being. I'm currently going through the motoventuring videos of the girls from alaska to the tip of South America. One thing I've noticed is a lot of shit tends to go wrong. Flat tires, cracked subframes, engine failures, etc etc. I feel like any one of these things could have been an 'oh shit', trip-ending problem. I'm kind of curious if this is standard and expected for big adventures, or if you can plan appropriately to keep things solid. I'd like to hear your thoughts on whether the 'oh shit something important broke' experience is indeed part of big trips or if isn't necessarily always going to happen. And I also want to hear your horror stories of mechanical failures and such that happened on your trips and how you solved them! (if you did). One fear I have for these big trips is what if your bike just completely gets ruined while in some remote land in an odd country. How do you get out or get back home?
