This trip is not about travel around the world in the fastest possible way or riding the oldest bikes that will brake every second minute, to be honest I can’t really see the point in that. Instead this is a trip to actually have time to see our beautiful planet. Ok, we are going to be free camping as much as possible so I guess we will freeze in Siberia and get very dirty by the sandy roads in Africa and maybe starve a bit in Mongolia (we are very picky with food both me and Anders) where they eat balls yuk… That was one of the things I picked up from Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman’s film Long Way Round.
The motorcycles we are going to ride are two BMW F800 GS. I will have mine factory lowered as I then can manage to reach the ground with my toes. They told me it will be fine when all the luggage is on the bike as that will lower it a bit more…. I bloody hope so 😉
From this trip we hope to come across as many different cultures as possible, not only meet lots of people but also visit many remote areas where you can “hear” the quietness.
