Pre-Departure

01 Oct

During the past several months, we completed the necessary preparations for our bikes and got all the necessities for our trip, including tools and spare pars.  This was a very long planning process.  It is hard to foresee what may happen in the future on your trip; nevertheless, we had to make ourselves play many scenarios and come up with possible  solutions for particular situations.  We also had an opportunity to talk to two people who have done long-range multi-country trips.  We learned from their experiences.  Both people have done amazing trips and gave us good tips.  At the end of this preparation process, we learned a few important lessons: 1) friends and families are important and 2) everything a person needs may fit in two side cases and a top bag.
