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.
