This idea seems to have been around a while, and gaining in popularity. I have found several RR's detailing individuals trips and some random threads with bits of info but no dedicated threads. The basic concept, ride your own bike on an open ended road trip around...well the world if you wanted to. Head out from your home with lets say 10 days to ride, at the end of that time you pull in to a storage facility, moth ball your bike and catch a plane ride home. The next time you have a little vacation fly back to your bike and continue on your adventure. Sounds fun and seem's simple but we all know there is lots more to it. I currently have a 2009 v-stom 1000 which I now own outright My wife and I are working on a plan to start traveling like this in the summer of 2014. Why then? Because I have to be ready to buy a new bike to replace my V once it goes into RSFR (ride store fly repeat) mode. Between now and then I am hoping to gain information from people who are out there doing this already. Tips, advice, suggestions. I am quite certain that the logistics are similar weather you are looking to road travel or dirt travel, camp or hotel, big bike or little bike. Some of the discussions I was hoping to get going are; prepping your bike to start this, maintaining your bike along the way, storing your bike between rides. Gear, do you duplicate all of it or fly some back and forth. Logistics of getting the bike to storage and then getting to your plane. (my wife and I figure that since there will be two of us on one bike we can rent a car for a day at each end to do the running around.) I am sure there are lots of other things I am not even thinking of yet, but that is why I am starting this thread..
