this trip is awesome, id love to do a big trip but cant work out how to finance it lol do you just have to save up like 20 grand or have you got sponsors lol!!
Alright man.. good to see a fellow Irish man here..
Well I dont think you need 20g!... think you could do it ALOT less.. just depends what you are willing to put up with. For me the best times are when you are slumming the shit out it... camping every night, eating out of super markets, and couch surfing. But dont get me wrong I spent a bit also and like a good meal and a few beers every now and again too, but i meet people doing it waaay cheaper than me.. a 6 month trip might only cost you less than 5 g's and thats including shipping the bike..
I have no sponsorship.. but who knows i might go that way soon.. i saved for a while for this.
If you want to to go enough you will find a way to make it happen!!! however long you want.
